biography of Claas Hendrik Meiners

Along with F.H. Hendriks and J.W. Bilders, Claas Hendrik Meiners belongs to the early painters of the Oosterbeek School. Born in Amsterdam and trained at the drawing academy of B.C. Koekkoek, after 1853 he regularly visited the southern border of the Veluwe region. There in the village of Oosterbeek a group of painters had gathered around J.W. Bilders and made the landscape around Wolfheze and Oosterbeek a theme in their work. Unlike the expansive landscapes of the Romantic painters, they chose to depict the intimate nature of the woodland, a preference which some of them took from artists of the French Barbizon School. To them it was all about conveying an overall impression of mood and atmosphere, rather than carefully depicting details. This can be traced in Meiners work, alongside his more romantic inclined landscapes and vistas.
