Skating in Holland

While the artist Johan Barthold Jongkind painted similar compositions to this in the 1860s, this work is likely to be a forgery. Jongkind himself often produced paintings of Dutch subject matter, returning to the Netherlands each year in the 1860s, even when he was settled in Paris.
