Eglon Van Der Neer - Legacy

Legacy

During his Amsterdam and Rotterdam period Van der Neer primarily painted genre scenes and portraits that betray a stunning variety of styles. His interior scenes show the influence of Pieter de Hooch, Gerard ter Borch, Gabriel Metsu and Frans van Mieris. Van der Neer painted only a handful of mythological and Biblical scenes. The early examples are very similar to his genre scenes and show figures in contemporary interiors. Later, in Brussels and Düsseldorf, Van der Neer situated his historical scenes outdoor, with a landscape setting. In these paintings he followed the example of Adam Elsheimer. His pure landscapes, without figures from literary sources, show various other stylistic influences, such as Jan Brueghel the Elder, and Jacques d'Arthois. Most of Van der Neer's paintings are small and his style is highly finished. However, he also could work on a large scale and would then adjust his manner of painting.
