The setting sun casts long shadows over the verdant grounds of the Villa Borghese, a landscape garden in Rome. The artist, Hendrik Voogd, is nicknamed the “Dutch Claude Lorrain,” after 17th-century French exponent of ideal landscape painting. Both artists spent most of their lives in Rome. The Rijksmuseum comments, however, that although Voogd’s paintings “recall the Italianate pictures of the 17th century, the atmosphere lies closer to the Romantic art of the 19th century. In his broad vistas, poignant groups of pine trees, particularly stone pine, and rapid waterfalls he conveyed the grandeur of nature, yet without the golden glow in which the landscapes of his 17th-century predecessors bask. In Voogd’s work, the light is cooler and the depiction meticulously detailed, with barely discernable brushstrokes.”
