William Dommersen (1850 - 1927) was of the Dutch - English romantic school. He visited the shores of Holland, Belgium, France, England and Italy, producing paintings which celebrate his journeys with his father and the essence of the local maritime cultures. His accomplished works often combine the brightest qualities of landscapes with the cool mystery of the waterways. Alive with colorful qualities and spatial architectural details, Dommersen's paintings advocate the universal normalcy of the European commoners. Agricultural and mariner types serenely populate nearly all his works, seemingly celebrating the simpler lifestyles one would invariably have contact with.
This pair of paintings are different scenes of local people along waterways. Both paintings have been professionally lined, cleaned, and re-varnished.
