Johannes Christiaan Karel Klinkenberg ( 1852 - 1924)
Johannes Christiaan Karel Klinkenberg studied at the Academy in The Hague with Christoffel Bisschop (1828-1904), the master for so many aspiring artists in The Hague, and with J. H. L. Meyer (1809-1866), the marine painter. Early in his career, Klinkenberg was a painter of landscapes and historical subjects before turning, in his late twenties, to painting town scenes. The painting of topographically accurate town scenes was a peculiarly, and particularly popular, Dutch genre.
