Jacob van Strij – Landscape with peasants and their cattle and anglers on the water – 1800-10

Jacob van Strij (2 October 1756 – 4 February 1815) was Dutch painter, printmaker, and draftsman who was mainly interested in landscape painting, including mountain landscapes, winter landscapes and marines.

Jacob van Strij painted italianate landscapes, mountain landscapes, cityscapes, winter landscapes, portraits, architectural paintings and marines. He took his inspiration from the 17th-century landscape painters of the Dutch Golden Age, in particular Albert Cuyp.

Jacob van Strij put a lot of effort and devotion in creating his winter scenes. In order to achieve an accurate imitation of nature he overcame his ill health (he suffered from gout) and went out in the biting cold on a drawn sleigh to make sketches for his compositions. These sketches were used in his studio for various paintings. Van Strij is known to have painted variations of his own compositions.
