indistinctly signed (lower left) oil on canvas 45.7 x 81.5 cm A Belgian painter, Charles Leickert is best known for his Dutch landscapes. Leickert explores the blue nuances of the evening sky and the dawn’s rose gold glows. Also specialized in winter views, he often romanticizes his skies with pale blue and shadows of white, especially in his paintings made in The Hague and Amsterdam. In 1856, he became a member of the Royal Academy of Amsterdam. “His paintings are carefully finished; elements such as vegetation and background are executed in particular detail. The color contrasts are often surprising, and the rendering is magnificent.” (J. Kraaij, Harry, Painter of the Dutch Landscape, Charles Leickert, Scriptum Signature, The Netherlands, 1996.)
