ⓘ Anton Mauve

Anthonij Rudolf Mauve was a Dutch realist painter who was a leading member of the Hague School. He signed his paintings A. Mauve or with a monogrammed A.M. He had a great influence on his cousin-in-law Vincent van Gogh.

Mauve mostly painted people and animals shown outdoors. The paining Morning Ride shows well-dressed riders at the coast of the sea, as they ride away from the viewer. One detail which is uncommon, but shows his realism are the horse droppings shown in the foreground of the picture. His best-known paintings show peasants working in the fields, and sheep-herding scenes.
