(b The Hague, 16 Feb. 1787; d The Hague, 19 Apr. 1870). Dutch landscape painter in oils and watercolour, a forerunner of the Hague School. He is best known for carefully depicted winter scenes reminiscent of those made by 17th-century Dutch artists, but he also painted seascapes and other subjects.
