hobbema meindert

Hobbema Meindert, 1638-1709, Dutch landscape painter. Baptized in Amsterdam on 31 October
1638, the son of Lubbert Meindert, he early assumed the surname of Hobbema. In landscape
art Hobbema was second only to his contemporary Jacob van Ruisdael, with whom he may have
studied. Most of his life was spent in a poor district of Amsterdam, where he died a
pauper. Hobbema was little appreciated in his day but he is now recognized as the last of
the great 17th-century Dutch masters of landscape. He painted most of his surviving work
before 1668, when he took a clerical position with the city; thereafter he produced very
few paintings. While lacking Ruisdael's scope and imagination, Hobbema equals him in
draftsmanship, bold execution, and color. His works are full of life and luminosity and
loving observation of nature. He painted chiefly woodland scenes, country villages, water
mills, and other rustic subjects, his great mastery of detail never detracting from the
general effect of his large and vigorous compositions. Much of his work is in England
where it greatly influenced the later English landscapists. Among his well-known works are
Avenue at Middelharnis Water Mill, and Entrance to a Village. The National Gallery,
London, has the best collection of his work. during his present life he was one that
existed as the greatest artist known to man. Those who saw his art were amazed by its
breathe taking appearance. All his painting that were created dispalyed many life like
cottages and small towns where people spent their livlihood.
