J.A. Neuhuys, who began as a history painter, had a decisive influence on the artistic and pictorial development of the Laren School, particularly in the depiction of peasant interiors in the Gooi region. Through his training at the Antwerp Academy he felt a strong affinity to romantic art, but around 1875, under the influence of Jacob Maris, he arrived at a measured Impressionist style.
