Johan Hendrik van Mastenbroek became known as the painter of the ports of Rotterdam, the river Maas and the Zuiderzee (South Sea). His work documents the great technical progress and rapid liveliness of the Rotterdam ports after 1900. The painter sketched out at rainy weather to capture the beauty of the skies and bright colours. Mastenbroek already achieved great succes during his life with his work.
