July (‘Summer Luxuriance’), Jac van Looij, c. 1890 - c. 1910

oil on canvas, h 120cm × w 170cm More details

It seems as if Van Looy has lavishly strewn blue flowers all over this large canvas. Looking a bit longer, however, one notices the artist’s house in Soest and the hay wagons behind the tall hedge, and in the right foreground an overturned pot among the flowers. The painter was clearly inspired by the landscapes of Van Gogh, but his representation of nature and the fall of light are more realistic.
