Anton Mauve (1838-1888)

Anton Mauve

I still have an admiration for the paintings by Anton Mauve, but when we visited the Singer Museum in Laren and saw the painting below

It struck me that many of his paintings were painted with people and animals seen from behind, leaving the scene and emphasizing the dept of the paintings. These are beautiful paintings and belong to the best dutch impressionism has given the world of art.

please look at some more examples and visit for more information and publications on Mauve.
