About the artist
In 1668, Hobbema took a job at the Amsterdam customs and excise department, where his role was overseeing the weighing and measuring of imported wine. Post this, his painting endeavors were mostly pursued in his free hours. His most celebrated piece, The Avenue at Middelharnis, was created in 1689 and is regarded as the closing masterpiece of the golden era of Dutch landscapes. Hobbema has been a much-admired artist in England, with his distinctive influence evident in Gainsborough's early landscapes. Furthermore, his work is prominently featured in English art collections.
