AETAS AETERNA XV. – Monograph based upon the 1973 Harvard Dissertation published 1978 on this important landscapist, draughtsman, and etcher (Alkmaar 1621 – Amsterdam 1675), pupil of Roeland Savery & Pieter de Molijn as well as himself teacher of the marine painter Ludolf Backhuysen, whose yield from his voyage to Scandinavia set standards. Included in particular also the pupil Gerard Edema active in England as also other imitators before 1850.

“ From a travel to Sweden and Norway he then brought home numerous sketches, details of nature from the northern mountainous world, he elaborated in his paintings and numerous graphic sheets. The northern landscape is animated by Dutch figure accessories.

The sketches from Scandinavia

met with an immense interest in Central Europe .

Certainly he has inspired J(acob) van Ruisdael and others with these themes. The less numerous marine drawings just as his sea paintings originate from the early period … In the 18th century these sheets and especially his watercolors were frequently valued ten times as high as a sketch by J. van Ruisdael ”
