Hendrik Jan Wolter is counted among the early Dutch luminists, to which Jan Toorop also belonged. During his studies at the Antwerp academy, Wolter became acquainted with the work of Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley and became friends with the Belgian luminist Emile Claus. Returning to our country in 1899, he chose the representation of sunlight as the main theme of his paintings. Wolter often painted quickly, with short, sharp brushstrokes, sometimes using the white of the canvas.
