Oil on canvas
Signed lower right: “Ch. Leickert.”
In this painting Charles Leickert depicted an animated town during winter, evoking a highly Romantic mood by drenching the painting in an almost supernatural light and sublime rendering of the evening sun.
Charles Leickert was a Belgian painter of Ducth landscapes. As a specialist in winter landscapes he explored the nuances of the evening sky and the rosy hues of dawn.
Charles Leickert first learned painting in The Hague under the supervision of landscape painters Bartholomeus van Hove, Wijnand Nuijen and Andreas Schelfhout. Leickert sometimes romanticised the sky in pale blues and bright pinks, but he is equally well known for numerous cityscapes. He painted almost all of his works in the Netherlands, in The Hague from 1841-1846 and in Amsterdam 1849-1883. In 1856, he became a member of the Royal Academy of Amsterdam.
His works can be seen in a number of museums including: Rijksmuseum, The Teylers Museum, Landesmuseum Hermitage Museum and the Odessa Museum of Western and Eastern Art.
