Johannes Evert Akkeringa painted exquisite still lifes of flowers but is best-known for his dune and beach scenes populated with fisherwomen and children. These are often jovial Dutch views capturing the women working happily while the children play in the sand under a blue sky and high clouds. He is regarded as one of the late Hague School artists.
