biography of Willem Karel 'W.C.' Nakken

Willem Carel Nakken was a painter of sun drenched landscapes and farmsteads, often with horses as staffage. Having first worked in and around The Hague, Oosterbeek and Limburg, from 1867 on, several study trips to Normandy provided him with subject matter for his paintings. The handsome, thickset horses he painted earned him a reputation as equestrian artist. He was often commissioned to paint portraits of horses and sometimes also of dogs, prized bulls and cattle.
