Charles Henri Joseph Leickert Biography

With the current re-assessment of the Dutch Romantic Landscape School, Charles Leickert is emerging as a much more important figure than he was rated by Marius at the turn of the century. The fact that he lived to almost ninety explains his prolific oeuvre and the variations in style and quality among his pictures. He can be a traditional landscapist in the manner of his master Shelfhout ? or he can paint sparkling effects of light with quick impressionistic brush strokes-an altogether more modern manner. At his best he is something of a Dutch version of Constable, a high point in a century exceptionally well supplied with landscape artists
