In 1644 the young Alkmaar artist Allart van Everdingen (1621-1675) traveled through Norway. An inspiring experience, determining for his career. He subsequently made countless paintings, drawings and etchings of rugged landscapes with waterfalls, log cabins and spruce trees.
These at first glance realistic snapshots of Norwegian nature, on closer inspection, turn out to be artistic constructions, conceived and executed in the workshop. With this, Van Everdingen created a new genre in Dutch art, which was in great demand and imitated by, among others, Jacob van Ruisdael. His impressive mountain views were also an important source of inspiration for Romantic painters in the nineteenth century. But he made more: dramatic sea and river views, Dutch landscapes full of narrative details, representations of the sources at Spa and illustrations of the story about Reinaert de vos. IN DUTCH!
