Jozef Israëls’s son, Isaac Israels (1865–1934) was raised on a diet of painting and travel. At thirteen, he entered art school in The Hague, where his prodigious talent was soon noticed. In 1881, he began a painting that was purchased before it was completed by Hendrik Willem Mesdag. In 1886, Israels enrolled at Amsterdam’s Art Academy, where he was considered ‘too good’. Israels often spent the summer months with his father in Scheveningen, where he painted seaside scenes in bright colours. In Amsterdam, Israels spent much of his time with George Hendrik Breitner. Both were fascinated by the idea of portraying city life by capturing a passing moment in time. To convey the sense of a snapshot, they cropped their subjects abruptly. Israels was in Paris, London and briefly in the Dutch East Indies from 1903 to 1923. He then returned to The Hague and took over his father's studio. There he remained, producing impressionist paintings in light colours.

BOOK A PRIVATE VIEW IN OUR ART GALLERY
A Private View is an opportunity to give you an early chance to the view (new) works, often before the opening of an exhibition.
Apart from these occasions, there are also opportunities to see the works on display in a Public View, which means that during opening hours, every first weekend of the month, you can drop in and find out if there are works of art that you find interesting.
We look forward to seeing you in our art gallery.
