Jan Van Couver
View of a Dutch Town by Jan van Couver (Hermanus Koekkoek Jr.) Impressionism

Late 19th Century

About the Item

Hermanus Koekkoek the Younger was part of the famous Koekkoek artist family: grandson of Johannes Hermanus Koekkoek, nephew of the landscape painter, Barend Cornelis Koekkoek, and son of Hermanus Koekkoek the Elder. His son, Stephen Robert Koekkoek, also chose to become a painter. Together with his brothers, Willem, Johannes Hermanus Barend and Hendrik Barend, Hermanus received his first art lessons from his father, who had recently settled in Amsterdam. In the 1860s, he began regular visits to London and settled there in 1869. The pseudonyms "Jan van Couver" appeared when selling his works in London; our painting is from the London period. Here we see his talent for painting landscape views with an impressionistic touch; the brush strokes are spontaneous and confident. The composition is built with a thick layer of impasto, giving it a three-dimensional feeling. He took inspiration from the Hague School when painting the dramatic elements, for example, the clouds. oil on canvas signed JvanCouver canvas dimensions 10.82 x 14.76 inches (27.5 x 37.5 cm) frame 16.92 x 20.86 inches (43 x 53 cm) Provenance: Art dealer Rudolph Ackermann, London (Old label on the back); A Swedish private collection

  • Impressionistic Summer Landscape with Road Painted 1889
    Located in Stockholm, SE
    Carl Johansson's "Summer Landscape with Road" is an exquisite landscape that encapsulates the serene beauty of the Swedish countryside. Painted in 1889, the same year Johansson showcased his work at the Exposition Universelle in Paris, one can't help but wonder if this very painting was among those displayed at the fair. "Summer Landscape with Road" offers a glimpse into the idyllic Swedish countryside through its masterful depiction. The scene is bathed in the distinctive light of the sun positioned at 30 degrees north-northwest, a unique aspect of Johansson's artworks. The viewer's eye is drawn along a winding dirt road that meanders through a tranquil pastoral landscape. Birch trees, with their white bark and tender green leaves, stand tall and sway gently, marking the passage toward a distant homestead nestled beside a calm lake. The rustic wooden fences and the clear sky, dotted with soft, billowing clouds, evoke a sense of peaceful solitude. Johansson's meticulous attention to detail and colour is evident in every brushstroke, from the lush greenery to the soft, earthy path leading to the horizon. The artist's signature use of light not only highlights the natural beauty of the North but also enhances the sense of depth and realism in the painting. Johansson's early works, such as this one, are exceedingly rare, making "Summer Landscape with Road" not only a visual delight but also a collector's gem. The painting's magnificent gold frame enhances the bright, vivid colours of the small-format artwork, creating an impactful presence. Carl Johansson's blue impressionistic depictions of Northern Sweden earned him the nickname "Ultramarine Johansson", and his paintings are celebrated in prestigious collections, including the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, Kalmar Art Museum, and the municipality of Hudiksvall. oil on canvas signed and dated Carl Johansson . 89 . unframed 27 x 39 cm framed 41,5 x 53 cm Provenance: The previous owner bought it in 1988 at Åmells Stockholm...
