I am nearing the end of my work for the picturebook about Max Liebermann for the Gemeentemuseum, The Hague.
In one of the reference books on my desk there is also a picture of the painting I like very much: Woman with her goat by Anton Mauve (1838-1888)
That is why I wanted to show you more of his work today.
He is one of the founders of the 'Larense school' of painting.
His works not only depict life in the idylic village of Laren, but also often life at the coast.
Mauve had his studio in The Hague, near the sea.
He died unexpectedly at the age of fifty, but nevertheless left a great corpus of work.
