Hendrik Jan Wolter is one of the early Dutch Luminists, together with Jan Toorop, Leo Gestel and others. During his studies at the academy of Antwerp he got acquainted with the work of Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley and became friends with the Belgian Luminist Emile Claus. In 1899, after he returned to the Netherlands, he chose the sunlight as the main theme for his paintings. Hendrik Jan Wolter often painted in fast, short but apt brushstrokes, making use of the ‘white’ of the canvas in a surprising way.
