Jozef Israels Dutch Fisherman's Wife Beach Holland
Jozef Israels, Dutch fisherman"s wife at the beach waiting for his return. A beautiful impressionist painting oil on canvas signed lower left measuring approx. 14 x 18 inches in excellent condition. Biography

Jozef IsraŽls, (born January 27, 1824, Groningen, Netherlandsódied August 12, 1911, The Hague), painter and etcher, often called the ďDutch MilletĒ (a reference to Jean-Franƈois Millet). IsraŽls was the leader of the Hague school of peasant genre painting, which flourished in the Netherlands between 1860 and 1900. He began his studies in Amsterdam and from 1845 to 1847 worked in Paris under the academic painters Horace Vernet and Paul Delaroche. IsraŽls first tried to establish himself as a painter of Romantic portraits and conventional historical pictures but had achieved little success when in 1855 ill health compelled him to leave Amsterdam for the fishing village of Zandvoort, near Haarlem. That change of scenery revolutionized his art: he turned to realistic and compassionate portrayals of the Dutch peasantry and fisherfolk (e.g., Waiting for the Herring Boats, 1875). In 1871 he moved to The Hague, and he often worked in nearby Scheveningen. Besides oils, IsraŽls worked in watercolours and was an etcher of the first rank. His later works in all media express a tragic sense of life and are generally treated in broad masses of light and shade. His painting style was influenced by Rembrandtís later works, and, like Rembrandt, IsraŽls often painted the poor Jews of the Dutch ghettos (e.g., A Son of the Chosen People, 1889). His son Isaac (1865Ė1934), also a painter, adopted an Impressionist technique and subject matter and had some influence on his fatherís later work.
