Lingeman, Lambertus(Dutch, 1829-1894)
A Dutch painter in the Old Master’s tradition, Lambertus Lingeman painted scenes including both affluent and peasant subjects. Normally capturing these subjects in the pursuit of leisure activities, the paintings feature figures reading, writing and reflecting. Lighting is an important element of each of his paintings, with the light typically highlighting the luminescence of the subject’s skin. The rest of the scene is dark in comparison but often features bold colors and rich patterns. The paintings exhibit a very finished, complete look in which the brushstrokes are barely visible. Paintings by the artist are owned by institutions worldwide including the National Museum at Amsterdam.
