Meindert Hobbema

1638-1709 Holland/Baroque

 

Brief Biography-Meindert Hobbema (Minderhout Hobbima) became noted for lush landscapes featuring trees, watermills, and cottages, his most famous being The Alley at Middelharnis. He was a disciple of Jacob van Ruisdael. Dutch artists inserted staffage into his paintings, including Adriaen Jansz van Ostade, David Teniers the Younger and Willem Van de Velde the Younger. Hobbema painted less in his later life and worked at customs and excise in Amsterdam; however, he died in poverty in 1709. His paintings reached high prices in London after his death.
