Louis Apol C. 1895 Oil on Board Dutch Artist Snowscene
A superbly executed oil on board by well known Dutch artist Louis Apol (1850-1936). He was a pupil of Johannes Franciscus Hoppenbrouwers (1819–66) and Pieter Stortenbeker (1828–98) and studied at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten in The Hague. His first exhibited work, in 1869, was a summer landscape, but he made his name with A January Evening in the Hague Woods (c . 1875; Amsterdam, Rijksmus.). He specialized in winter landscapes; his works became extremely popular in the last quarter of the 19th century. This painting comes in what appears to be the original period frame which measures approx. 18" x 15". The frame has some damage as shown but works quite well with the painting. The painting itself is in very good condition and signed lower right.
