Lot Notes
Wijnand Nuijen (1813-1839) is commonly seen as an infantprodigy. At a very young age his father recognised his talent andarranged for Andreas Schelfhout (1778-1870), who was by thenalready a famous artist, to take him on as a pupil in his workshopat the age of only twelve. Later on Schelfhout in turn would takelessons from his pupil in order to, as he put it, "get rid of hisgreen, mushy palet". In the same year, 1825, Nuijen became astudent of the The Hague Drawingacademy, where he was tutored byBartholomeus van Hove (1790-1880). In 1829, at the age of 16! hepainted the astonishing picture known as De afgeknotte molen (Thetruncated windmill) now in a private collection. This idea, to cutoff the painterly subject at the edge of the picture and thuscreating a snapshot effect was revolutionary in an age where thecamera wasn't even invented yet. Jacob Maris repeated this idea in1872 in a picture with the same title which is in the collection ofthe Rijksmuseum Amsterdam (inv. no. A2458) and even then some artcriticts could not understand nor appreciate this way of composingpictorial space. No wonder the critics of Nuijen's day did notunderstand his work some fourty-three years earlier.
Nuijen was a non-conformist and mostly sought his inspirationduring his travels to France and Germany in 1833 and to Paris andNormandy, France where he was inspired by the marine painter EugneIsaby (1803-1886). His palet was lighter than that of his Dutchcontemporaries and his style was looser than the critics of his dayappreciated. Another thing that the critics of his day could notunderstand was that Nuijen did not confine himself to onediscipline. He painted marines as wel as extensive landscapes andcity views. Nuijen was of great influence on Dutch painting of the19th century in particular painters as Johannes Bosboom(1817-1891), Huib van Hove Bz. (1814-1864) en Samuel Verveer(1813-1876) owe much to his ideas. The present lot, painted in1839, the year of Nuijens untimely death, clearly shows us acomposition scheme already used in the 17th century by amongstothers, Jacob van Ruisdael (1628-1682) and Jan van Goyen(1596-1665). The large sunlit building, that stands out against adark foreground, and almost totaly fills the plane in the right,automatically draws the eye of the beholder to the horizon in theleft of the picture where the waters and the skies meet. Nuijen'sskies and waters do not clash, as oposed to the pictures by VanGoyen and Ruisdael, but gradually flow over in one another, thusenhancing the tranquil atmophere Wijnand Nuijen was looking for.The eye is drawn to the hay-barge by the diagonals formed by thefloating tree trunks to the right and left of the barge. Bij usinga simple and solid composition, Nuyen has enhanced the peacefulnature of the subject-matter. Pictoral elements such as thelove-birds on the roof top and the dozing ducks on the tree trunksfurthermore attribute to the scene's tranquil quality.
