Charles Leickert was briefly a student of W.J.J. Nuijen and from 1839 by Andreas Schelfhout. This latter master in particular had a great deal of influence on his work. Leickert painted beautiful Dutch ice scenes, summer landscapes and river views in which he incorporated all kinds of motifs from his sketchbooks. After 1845 he also painted beach scenes and cityscapes. The appeal of his paintings is partly determined by the lighting and strongly narrative details. Leickert was a true craftsman, who was able to represent the right mood in a clever way and thus sensed the taste of the audience. His winter faces are really cold, his summers sunny and green.
