Eickelberg-Bomschuit op het strand-Lyklema Fine Art Collection

Willem Eickelberg (Amsterdam 1845-Hilversum 1920) was a student of J.C.C. Veltens and from the Amsterdam Academy. He painted, drew and made lithographs. He continued to live and work in Amsterdam until 1878. He then first settled in Hilversum, Nieuwer Amstel and Blaricum and then ended up back in Hilversum. His winter landscapes are often highly romantically idealized. Eickelberg also painted city and beach scenes in an early impressionism that are more current and captured more closely to truth and nature. He also made a few still lifes and church interiors. His cityscapes of Amsterdam in particular are considered his best works. The fact that he developed both the romantic and impressionist styles in his work makes him an interesting artist for art history. Although he never became widely known, his work hangs in the Kröller Müller, the Maritime Museum and the Goois Museum. He taught Toon de Jong.
