Willem Maris was the younger brother of Jacob and Matthijs, with whom he shared a studio in The Hague. He preferred to paint landscapes abounding in water, with ducks or cattle in marshy pastures on a ditch or watercourse. Maris was mainly concerned in conveying the way in which light touched his subjects. ‘I don’t paint cows, I paint the effects of light’, he once said about his work. For this reason he is sometimes called the ‘Impressionist’ of the Hague School.
