Teylers Museum paintings

Both views are from inside the Teylers Museum in Haarlem; above is in one of the two 'painting galleries', showing a collection of works from the Dutch Romantic School and the later Hague and Amsterdam Schools. Note how the light comes in through the glass ceiling.

The exhibition Real Winters, with 19th century Dutch paintings, shows the joys of skating and sledding in the freezing cold, with refreshment stalls dotted around the ice. The painting on the left is from Johan Barthold Jongkind (1819-1891) and is titled 'Wintergezicht met schaatsers' (Winter view with skaters'). I really enjoyed these typically Dutch Winter views.

Have a nice weekend!

6 opmerkingen:

  1. Op de schilderijen zie je goed dat de typische Hollandse wolkenluchten al eeuwen bestaan!

  2. Like the woman's expression as she's entering the room. :-)

  3. The natural lighting is just beautiful Marleen ... what a wonderful Art gallery; I wish I could visit it . (We are quite lacking in culture here in Florida -- what we give up for a warm sunny winter.) I love your daffodil header. Reminds me of when we lived in Oregon, where they bloom. We don't have them here.

  4. You are right. These paintings are beautiful. And I like the climate of your photos.

  5. Such beautiful and evocative art. The skating scenes particularly.

  6. Ja het blijft een van de mooiste museums van ons land.


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
