Hendrick Avercamp was a Dutch landscape painter. He was born in Amsterdam, but the family moved to Kampen shortly after his birth. He received the nickname of the mute from Kampen. It is believed that Avercamp was deaf from birth and therefore never learned to speak properly. But already at a young age it became clear that Avercamp can express itself very well in pictures. His parents hired a drawing teacher for the twelve-year-old. But since the teacher died of the plague very early, the training was short-lived. Avercamp finally moved back to Amsterdam at the age of 18. He started an apprenticeship with the Danish painter Pieter Isaacks. Other influencers were probably David Vinckboons, Pieter Bruegel the Elder and Gillis van Coninxloo. After completing his apprenticeship, Avercamp returned to Kampen and probably never left the place again, except for short trips to Amsterdam.

Avercamp was one of the first Dutch landscape painters to specialize almost exclusively in winter landscapes. He often chose an atmospheric perspective so that the viewer has a wide view of the scenery. The pictures were colorful and detailed. The fascination for this scenery can probably be attributed to two triggers. For one, Avercamp was born at a time that fell on the last quarter of the so-called Little Ice Age. The years of his youth were characterized by long and particularly cold winters. On the other hand, Avercamp is said to have often made trips with his parents to ice skate as a result of this fact. This memory must be firmly anchored in his memory, because many of his winter landscapes, such as ice pleasure, show exactly this type of scene. Avercamp's works showed everyday scenes in nature with a certain popular charm. On closer inspection, the images often tell countless smaller stories. This fact made it popular, also across national borders, and brought it good sales because it met the taste of the general public.

For many of his pictures, Avercamp went out into nature in winter and made countless sketches. These then served as the basis for his paintings in his studio. Avercamp is said to have created around 100 works in total. Avercamp has had several students throughout his career, such as his nephew Barent Avercamp or Arent Arentsz. But none of them took over his stylistic successor. Although Avercamp liked to paint large, lively crowds, he himself lived very retired. It is not known whether this was due to the fact that he was disabled, which has been documented more frequently. But his mother apparently always felt pity and concern for her son and even let in her will that in addition to his inheritance, unlike his brothers, Hendrick should receive an annual allowance of 100 guilders. However, Hendrick Avercamp ultimately died only 5 months after his mother. © Meisterdrucke
