Date

Description

For the last two weeks of August in 1873, Johannes Bosboom and his wife stayed at Zeerust Hotel in Scheveningen. There he drew several sketches, over fifteen of which he turned into watercolours. At the heart of this watercolour are a few simple, timberbuilt fishermen’s houses. In the distance, behind the dune, overgrown with beach grass, stands the Dutch Reformed church of Scheveningen.; De laatste twee weken van augustus 1873 logeerden Johannes Bosboom en zijn vrouw in hotel Zeerust in Scheveningen. Daar maakte hij diverse schetsen, waarvan hij er ruim vijftien in aquarel uitwerkte. Centraal op deze aquarel staan enkele eenvoudige uit hout opgetrokken visserswoningen. In de verte achter de met helmgras begroeide duinen is nog net de Nederlands Hervormde kerk van Scheveningen te zien.
