The romantic painter Petrus Gerardus Vertin lived and worked mostly in The Hague. He painted Dutch cityscapes and street scenes in the summer and winter. At times, his work is topographic, but he mostly chose to paint imaginary scenes. In his winter landscapes, in particular, he paid great attention to the reflection of the light from the snow-covered roofs, window and door frames, and pavements. Charles Rochussen and S.L. Verveer painted the staffage in a few of his city landscapes.
