biography of George Lourens Kiers

George Lourens Kiers schilderde meestal haven- zee en riviergezichten. Na zijn leertijd bij de zeeschilder Louis Meijer en een periode in Drenthe keerde hij definitief terug in Amsterdam. Aanvankelijk schilderde hij buitengewoon nauwkeurige, romantische stadsgezichten. Een geliefde plek was het Amsterdamse IJ met zijn schepen, havens en sluizen, waar in de tweede helft van de 19e eeuw grote veranderingen plaatsvonden. In zijn latere werk, vooral na 1900, is de invloed van het impressionisme van de Haagse School duidelijk zichtbaar.
