Title

The Beach at Scheveningen; Het strand van Scheveningen

Date

1873

Description

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.; Johannes Bosboom ontdekte de badplaats Scheveningen tijdens een vakantie in 1873. De nogal neerslachtig aangelegde kunstenaar schilderde doorgaans stemmige kerkinterieurs. Die zomer leefde hij helemaal op, wat resulteerde in onder meer dit weidse panorama. Bomschuiten, vissersvrouwen, kerkgangers, gereedstaande ezels en rechts het in 1853 afgebroken zomerverblijf Nieuw-Soetenburgh dat Bosboom mogelijk. aan de hand van een oude afbeelding heeft toegevoegd.
