The artist, of whom the dates of birth and death seem to be unknown, is known to have been active between 1823 and 1830, specializing in ice-scenes, mostly set in or near Amsterdam. A comparable watercolour, signed and dated 1830, was sold in these rooms, 20 November 1989, lot 300. Two further watercolours by the artist from the Van Eeghen collection are in the Municipal Archives, Amsterdam (B. Bakker, E. Fleurbaay, A. Gerlagh, De verzameling Van Eeghen, Amsterdamse tekeningen 1600-1950, Zwolle/Amsterdam, 1988, p. 400, nos. 443-4)
