Much sought after, rare 19th-century work by the Dutch painter Lodewijk Franciscus Hendrik Apol (1850-1936) with an expressionist Dutch winter landscape with a windmill. Oil paint panel and signed by the master. The Hague School within reach.
Lodewijk Franciscus Hendrik (Louis) Apol (6 September 1850 in The Hague – 22 November 1936) was a Dutch painter, draftsman, photographer and etcher. He belonged to the Hague School. Louis Apol was a student of, among others, Johannes Franciscus Hoppenbrouwers and Pieter Stortenbeker at the Royal Academy of Art (1867-1872). In 1871 he received the Royal Subsidy for Painting and in 1874 a silver medal at an exhibition in Amsterdam.
Apol is best known for his winter landscapes, mainly paintings and watercolors of snowy forest scenes. In it, people, and things built by man, play a subordinate role. Apol's work can be found in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Singer in Laren, the Teylers Museum in Haarlem and in the Kunstmuseum Den Haag, among others.
