    George Hitchcock is one of the American artists who visited picturesque Holland in the 19th century to paint. He studied at the prestigious Brown and Harvard Law School universities. Despite his law studies, he then followed his heart and apprenticed with the painters Gustave Boulanger and Jules Joseph Lefebvre at the Académie Julian in Paris. After this apprenticeship, Hitchcock left for the Netherlands around 1880, where he was briefly taught by Mesdag. Hitchcock is known for its Dutch landscapes, girls in picturesque costumes, seascapes and colorful bulb fields. The quiet Egmond aan Zee was a favorite place for him. There he opened an 'Art Summer School' for foreigners, from which the Egmond school (1884-1905) arose.
