A Group of Houses, George Hendrik Breitner, c. 1880 - c. 1923

oil on canvas, h 38cm × w 45cm × t 2.8cm More details

At the time of his death Breitner’s studio was filled with unfinished sketches and paintings. They provide insight into how he set to work. In this Amsterdam city view the first colours have been applied, yet the pencil lines of the underdrawing are still clearly visible, especially in the white reserves. He usually bought his canvasses sized, grounded, and stretched, ready for use.
