brush, h 355mm × w 552mm More details

Johannes Bosboom discovered the bathing resort of Scheveningen while on holiday in 1873. Until then, the usually sombre artist had mainly painted solemn church interiors. That summer his spirits revived completely, resulting in several works, including this wide panorama. Boats, fishwives, churchgoers, donkeys waiting for rides and on the right, Nieuw-Soetenburgh, a summer residence demolished in 1853, which Bosboom may have copied from an old illustration.
