Henri Frederic Boot (1877-1963) - "Roze Hortensia in pot"
油彩、畫布 - Hand signed - omstreeks 1930

Large, pre-war impressionist oil on canvas with a depiction of a flowering Hydrangea in pot. Painted around 1930 by the founder of what would later become known as the "Haarlem school" and teacher to Kees Verwey (1900-1995).

Henri Frédéric Boot (1877-1963) was seen as an eccentric painter. After a short study classical languages, he developed into a painter of carefully finished still lifes and portraits. Especially the still lifes, often casual corners of his crowded workshop, are typical of Boots conception of art. A painter especially had to show the beauty of the everyday reality in his work. The subject did not really matter. Boot was kindred to the movement of the Tachtigers, with painters like Lodewijk van Deyssel. Also philosophies of classical antiquity about detachment and serenity are can be clearly seen in Boots’ lifestyle. Boots had a remarkably large influence on artist Kees Verwey. For both of them, the still life was the ultimate genre; It did not only set high standards of precise observation but especially to the spatial view of the objects in a clear, intimate arrangement.
