A Road by a Cottage

This is an early work by Haccou, who was born and trained in Middelburg. He was a pupil of Johannes Hermanus Koekkoek (1778 - 1851). After travelling in Switzerland, France and Germany, Haccou settled in London.

The trees, especially the foliage, are meticulously painted in this carefully composed and finely painted view.
