Name: Johannes Franciscus Spohler
Dates: (1853 - 1879)
Nationality: Dutch
Biography:

J.F. Spohler was born in 1853, probably in Leiden, South Holland.  His father was the well-known landscape artists Jan Jacob Spohler (1811-1866) and his brother Jacob Jan Coenraad Spohler (1853-1894) was also a painter.  J.F. Spohler was born at the height of the Romantic Movement in Holland and he was very much an exponent of this genre.  He followed in the footsteps of the most accomplished painter of town views, Cornelis Springer (1817-1891).  Spohler often chose to paint on small mahogany panels and his fine draughtsmanship was always apparent in his work. 

 

Like most Dutch landscapes, town and country views, usually featured bodies of water and people engaged in everyday activities.  Spohler painted with a delicate palette, concentrating on topographical accuracy and his paintings often have a jewel-like quality, their tone depicting contrast and stunning effects of light.
