The German painter Max Thedy was educated at the academy in his native Munich. He was a gifted artist, as evidenced by his appointment at the age of 24 as professor of figure and genre painting at the 'Großherzoglichen Kunstschule' in Weimar. Through his studies in Munich, Thedy had a great knowledge of Dutch genre painters. In 1887 Max Thedy himself visited the Netherlands: Katwijk, which at that time was a real attraction for foreign artists, and Leiden. This journey is followed by a series of interiors of Dutch farmhouses and fishermen's houses, painted in an impressionist style.
