Cornelis Springer mainly painted town and village scenes in which facades and staffage are bathed in warm sunlight. Together with Barend Cornelis Koekkoek and Andreas Schelfhout, he belongs to the leading painters of Dutch Romanticism. Springer often assigns a prominent place to 17th and 18th century buildings in his paintings. Sometimes this is in the form of an imaginative piece of architecture, but in most cases these were existing buildings in which people rediscovered their beauty in around 1850. Springer first made a detailed sketch of these buildings which he later reworked into a painting.
