CAPPELLE, Jan van de
(b. 1624, Amsterdam, d. 1679, Amsterdam)
Oil on wood
Rijksmuseum Twenthe, Enschede
Cappelle is mainly known as a marine painter. However, he also painted some beach scenes and more than forty winter landscapes. These, like his marines, render nature with a wonderful feeling for the pictorial qualities of Holland's sea atmosphere, with its heavy clouds and translucent air.
