A Scene on the Ice

Vermeulen's landscapes are based upon 17th-century precedents. This type of composition is based on the work of Isack van Ostade, for example his 'A Winter Scene' in the National Gallery's Collection. A similar work by the artist (Frankfurt, Städelsches Kunstinstitut) is signed and dated 1800.
