The painters of the Hague School had a preference for the poor fisherman's life as it is happening for example in nearby Scheveningen. However mauve shows here the other side of the fishing village: the sunny world of wealthy citizens. Three riders descend to the beach where the bathing machines are ready for the swimmers. Blond and blue colors well give the salty atmosphere of a summer day at the beach again.
Antonij (Anton) Mauve (1838-1888)
Anton was born in Zaandam. At age 16 he entered Haarlem apprenticed to the cattle painter Pieter Frederik van Os and then at the horse painter Wouter Verschuur. Along with Paul Gabriel Mauve often went into nature to paint. From the age of twenty, he worked in Oosterbeek, where many artists have stayed. In 1871 Mauve moved into a studio in The Hague. There he gave Vincent Van Gogh, whom he was a cousin, a short time painting lessons. From 1882 he worked in summer often in Laren, where he settled in 1885. His work was already known and loved by collectors from home and abroad. In America Mauve's flocks of sheep were especially popular, with a distinction between 'sheep coming' (sheep from the front) and the slightly cheaper 'sheep going. With its moody, atmospheric landscapes with cattle Mauve is considered one of the Hague School.
