AFTERNOON SESSION, AT 2.00 P.M. PRECISELY
A COLLECTION OF WORKS BY GEO POGGENBEEK (1853-1903)
"He has more than any other reproduced the sense of this (the Hague) School in his distinguished conception of our landscape with meadows and cattle, which has been painted in so many various ways. To the delicacy of Mauve he added the luxurious green which Willem Maris gives us in his 'duck' motives; and, though he lacks the passion of the latter and the simplicity of the former, he commands a daintiness of line, of a more or less decorative quality, by which he atones in distinction of composition for his shortcomings in power."
The art historian G.H. Marius (1903)
