Dutch painter considered the forerunner of the Impressionists
. He most often painted landscapes, the sea and the waterfront (in The Netherlands or France). He used watercolour for his sketches and then repainted them in the studio using oil on canvas. The images are crisp with vivid colours. He painted landscapes with a low horizon, which showcases the dominating sky. His work influenced Monet
(especially in terms of capturing light at different stages of the day and different weather conditions). Although other painters admired him, he did not fare well as he suffered the consequences of alcoholism and lived on the edge of poverty.
