Canal Cottage

Artist: Anton Mauve

Anthonij (Anton) Rudolf Mauve (1838 –1888) was a Dutch realist painter who was a leading member of The Hague School, who were particularly interested in painting out of doors and capturing light effects. Mauve was well known for a special effect of silvery light he achieved in his works. He received his first drawing lessons from the animal painter Pieter van Os. He married Ariette Carbentus who was Vincent van Gough’s cousin and is credited with introducing and teaching Van Gough to paint at the end of 1881. Van Gough held him in high esteem and Mauve is mentioned, directly or indirectly, in 152 of Van Gogh's surviving letters. A master colourist his paintings are usually simple domestic subjects often featuring peasants and animals interacting with one another and the nature around them in a peaceful atmosphere with a high level of realistic not ‘prettified’ detail. They were well received and sold well thanks to the good international contacts of Vincent van Gogh's uncle, who was an art dealer in The Hague. Mauve moved to Laren in 1885 (it became known as Mauve Land) by which time his work was popular and widely sort after both in Holland and abroad. His landscapes including sheep were particularly popular in America and in a weird quirk there was a difference in price between the ‘sheep coming’ and the ‘sheep going’ versions which were less expensive. He died suddenly aged 49.
