Landscape painting originated in the Netherlands. The realism of the Old Masters of the 17th century was the standard. With the open-air painting developed in France, the Dutch painters of the 19th century received new impulses.

The Hague School captured the changing light moods of nature in high cloudy skies with many shades of gray.
Beginning in the 1880s, urban landscapes and modern life became a theme in interplay with Impressionist influences from France, before the unleashing of color defined painting with Pointillism.

Lenders include the Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Kunstmuseum Den Haag, the Dordrechts Museum, the Kröller Müller Museum in Otterlo, and the Singer Museum in Laren.

An exhibition of the Museum Barberini, Potsdam, in collaboration with the Kunstmuseum Den Haag.

Under the patronage of the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Germany, H. E. Ronald van Roeden.
