Jan Hendrik Weissenbruch is considered one of the most gifted painters of the Hague School. He chiefly painted landscapes on the outskirts of The Hague and the polder land around Boskoop and Gouda. His great strength lay in portraying typical Dutch light – sometimes bright, sometimes diffuse and hazy. He was also fascinated by skies. ‘Sky and light are the great sorcerers', he once said. ‘Both grey rainy skies as well as clear cloudy skies on a summer’s day.' 'Painters can never look too much at skies.’ Weissenbruch gave painting lessons to Victor Bauffe and Theophile de Bock.
