Family of the artist
Anton Mauve was born in Zaandam. At the age of 16 he was apprentice to the painter Pieter Frederik van Os in Haarlem and later to the horse painter Wouter Verschuur. Together with Paul Gabriel, Mauve often went out into nature to paint. In 1871 Mauve moved into a studio in The Hague, where he briefly gave Vincent van Gogh – or whom he was a cousin by marriage – painting lessons: he would teach how to paint after life. Famous for his atmospheric paintings with animals in the countryside, he spent most of his prosperous years in Laren (NH), where he was one of the founders of the Larense School. He painted many of his works in the Laren area, referred to by connoisseurs as “The Land of Mauve”.
