Johann Hendrik Weissenbruch

1824–1903, The Hague

Johan Hendrik Weissenbruch, a landscape artist who studied from 1843 to 1850 at the Academy of Art in The Hague, was a pupil of Andreas Schelfhout. He ranks as one of the foremost representatives of The Hague School who followed in the footsteps of the masters of Barbizon in devoting themselves to plein-air painting. Together with his nephews, Jan and Willem Roelofs, Weissenbruch was a founding member of the Pulchri Studio association of artists in The Hague.
