Lot Notes
Clearly painted at the height of his career, The Happy Family can be regarded as one of the outstanding masterpieces of Bernardus Blommers' oeuvre. His reputation as a painter of dune scenes and seascapes in which figures played a leading role rests on works of this superior caliber. The painting displays the characteristic anecdotal qualities for which his work is so highly appreciated. The subject-matter, a beautifully balanced composition, the colors, tones and its excellent condition make its appearance on the art market a rare event.

Bernard Blommers was the son of a well respected printer and was originally trained as a lithographer. But his interests lay elsewhere and he actively pursued a career as an artist and enrolled in the Academy of The Hague.

While painting on the beach of Scheveningen, Blommers befriended fellow artist Josef Israels. Just like Israels, Blommers frequently went to the beach to find inspiration. Although they shared a fascination for the life of the Dutch fishing people and made it the central theme of their respective oeuvres, both artists had a totally different approach towards their subject matter. Israels had a social-realistic focus and did not hesitate to depict the hardship often experienced by the impoverished fisher-folk. Blommers' representations were more anecdotal. This idyllic scene is characteristic of his conception of traditional fisher family life. The Happy Family depicts a languid evening on the beach, a father in admiration of his small daughter as she plays in the sand. The mother is knitting, perhaps sometimes stealing a glance at the other children that are playing in the surf in the background. To Blommers, children represented happiness and innocence, and he often captured children's play in his pictures. He himself once said that although he saw children by the sea almost everyday, they offered him something new every time. ('Ja, dat schilder ik graag, zulke kinderen aan zee. Ik zie ze bijna iedere dag zoo, en toch altijd weer is 't nieuw, moet ik er even bij stilstaan.' (T. de Liefde-van Brakel, B. J. Blommers (1845-1915), Katwijk, 1993, p. 39).

This carefree character of Blommers' work made him one of the most sought-after and renowned painters of the Hague School. His work and that of his peers was widely collected, not only in The Netherlands but also in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. Dutch dealers and Hague School artists eagerly participated in the major art exhibitions that were organized in these countries and many of Blommers' works found their way into major international collections. So formidable was his artistic reputation that when the artist and his wife visited the United States in 1904 he was received with all honors by President Theodore Roosevelt.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------THE EVENING MEAL

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bernardus Johannes Blommers was born in the Netherlands in 1845. He was a painter of delicate genre compositions, and landscapes. He was one of the most famous painters at The Hague School. Artists of The Hague School worked in Holland from around 1860 to 1900. Like the French Barbizon School, these artists turned away from academic themes based on history or mythology. Instead they made realistic depictions of their immediate surroundings, including rural landscapes, peasant life, beach scenes, and, occasionally, urban streets. They were sensitive to the effects of light and atmosphere, recalling the great tradition of 17th-century Dutch landscape painting. Among the leaders of The Hague School were Jozef Isreals, Willem and Jacob Maris, Hendrik Willem Mesdag, Paul J.C. Gabriel, Bernard J. Blommers, Hendrik J. Weissenbruch, Johannes Bosboom, Willem Roelofs, Anton Mauve and David A.C. Artz.De Hoog was especially noted for his scenes with children and country life with peasants. Blommers became extremely famous in his lifetime placing many paintings in famous museum collections, and private collections. He passed away in 1914 contributing greatly to Dutch art.

NOTED DUTCH ARTIST, J.B. BLOMMERS, DIES; Painter of Joyous Scenes of Peasant Life Succumbs in Amsterdam at 69. HEAD OF DUTCH ACADEMY Author of "The Fishermen's Children" Painted Carnegie's Portrait for Peace Palace at The Hague.


Bernardus Johannes (Bernard Blommers (30 January 1845 in The Hague – 15 December 1914) in The Hague) was a Dutch etcher and painter of the Hague School.[1]

He learned lithography early in his career, and then studied at the Hague Akademie under Johan Philip Koelman until 1868.[2] His early paintings were mostly genre works depicting fishermen and their wives, heavily influenced by Jozef Israƫls.[2] The later works (from about 1890) are more loosely painted, although maritime and genre scenes remained the primary subject matter. His work was critically successful during his lifetime, being sought after by English, Scottish and American collectors.

Message From Charles Mulertt
The Grandson of Carl Eugene Mulertt

Dear Jeannette [october 4, 2010]

Thank you for this information; My grand father is born in 1869..died in 1963. He spent more than 20 years in Holland between 1899 and 1922.He lived in Katwijk-an-zee by the North see this can explain some similarities with the Bommer's painting. My grand father studied painting in Paris in the 1890's and travelled to holland because he got some orders for paintings in Holland. He got advices from Dutch painter Jozef Israel (1824 1911) and you can see similarities between the master and the pupil.

I went to Nashville last year but I did not have enough time to visit everything. I visited the Country music hall of fame & museum, the old Ryman Auditorium, the Parthenon , Brodway etc...

I live in Lyon in France but I like to travel and especially in North America. I spent

if you are interested in paintings I can send you photo's of paintings I have at home; I will probably travel to the East coast in 2011 or after. Wishing you a nice Sunday

Sincerely
Charles

Note from Charles Mulertt, grandson of the artist:

Mulertt came to the USA with his mother in 1882 and then went back to Europe to study painting. He lived many years in Holland but sent many paintings to customers in the USA. He married his wife in Holland.
