Jan Weissenbruch (1822-1880) was a Dutch artist, mainly known for his city paintings. Weissenbruch was a member of the Hague School group. They generally made use of relatively somber colors, which is why the Hague School is sometimes called the Gray School. However, Weissenbruch’s works are realistic and appear bright, fresh and lively. He excels at painting clear blue skies and sharp outlined buildings. His works are even compared with works of Vermeer.
Currently, his works are on display at the Teylers museum (Haarlem, The Netherlands)
