This appealing oil on canvas painting was done by the Dutch artist, Theodoor Soeterik. Theodoor was born and lived his entire life in the great city of Utrecht in the Netherlands. He was an apprentice to Bruno van Straaten, who was largely responsible for bringing the Dutch winter and skating scenes back to life during the early 1800s. Winter landscapes and cityscapes first became popular in the early 1600's by artists such as Hendrick Avercamp.

This beautiful and large painting depicts a wonderful winter scene in a city. There is a frozen river running alongside the buildings with people ice skating, children playing, and people transporting their goods in sleds. The artist’s use of light indicates a sunny day by the shadows on the buildings, highlights on the ice, and a blue sky with cumulus clouds. This fine Dutch painting will be an asset to any area of the home. Signed lower left on river dock.

CONDITION: Good condition with craquelure to painting. Frame has age separations, rubs to edges. Recently professionally touched up. Ready to hang.
