Kasper Niehaus painted portraits and landscapes with figures in a highly recognisable style. His forms are outlined and rigidly stylised, the colours light and wispy, the figures and setting brought together in a well-considered composition emanating peace and harmony. Niehaus was also an art critic and through his contributions and his book 'Levende Nederlandsche Kunst' (Living Dutch Art) endeavoured to take a stand for modern painting.
