This talented Dutch post-Impressionist painter first studied in Utrecht and The Hague before moving to London in 1896 where he specialized in figural paintings and still-lives. He worked for many years in England and became a naturalized citizen before returning to teach art in Delft. We are offering a bright and vibrant Caribbean scene from the artist’s middle period. Van Anrooy shows us his mastery of light and color in this lively yet balanced composition.
