About this artwork

Hendrick Avercamp, a 17th-century Dutch artist, created the miniaturised artwork known as 'A Winter Scene with Skaters near a Castle'. This piece portrays the residents of a fantasy town delighting in the infamously chilly winters. Despite Avercamp spending most of his life in his hometown of Kampen, his art is universally admired because it recalls the innate splendor of winter. The colours of this print are perfectly aligned with the original and have received approval from the National Gallery. Every purchase contributes to the museum's ongoing operations.

About the artist

Born in 1585 and died in 1634, Hendrick Barentsz Avercamp was a remarkable, mute (and likely deaf) artist, fondly known as 'the Mute of Kampen' (de stom van Campen). His main specialty was creating fascinating winter landscape paintings, which seemed to resonate with Dutch patriots, symbolizing the essence of the recently established Republic of the United Provinces of the Netherlands.

Avercamp was an Amsterdam native and likely underwent training under Pieter Isaacsz. He took inspiration initially from Flemish artists who were Pieter Bruegel the Elder's followers. Avercamp likely crossed paths with David Vinckboons, a follower of Bruegel who had moved to Amsterdam. His nephew, Barent Avercamp (1621-79), also adopted his painting style, as did others like Arent Arentsz.

Avercamp's artwork was distinct, often featuring detailed clusters of small figures connected through subtly graduated colour. These were carefully composed in the studio, based on keenly observed watercolour sketches.
