Alten’s work in the Netherlands was influenced by The Hague School, a group of artists active in the late 1800s. They were inspired by the realist painters of the French Barbizon school and emphasized atmosphere and mood through subdued colors, particularly greys. This painting shows the influence of The Hague School through Alten’s use of a soft grey throughout the composition, especially in the water and sky.
Two horses with large carts behind them. A few men are near them in the water.
Gift of George H. and Barbara Gordon
