Kruseman learned from B.C. Koekkoek how to compose a romantic landscape. Having been trained by N.J. Roosenboom and Jan van Ravenswaaij, Kruseman went to Kleve, Germany, in 1837 to perfect the art of painting under B.C. Koekkoek. A frozen canal with skaters, walkers on a towpath, a small picturesque castle and jagged bare trees are all recurring motifs in Kruseman’s winter scenes. He also painted dreamy summer landscapes with finely elaborated trees and populated with cattle and a few simple hunters and peasants.
