Note:
Lieste is known for his panoramic landscapes with intense colours painted in the romantic tradition. After half a century, the Teylers Museum recently bought back a painting of a Landscape at Sunset by Lieste which is very similar to this work. The painting was initially acquired by the museum in 1850. After being exhibited for over a 100 years, the museum sold it to a German private collector in 1966, due to their critical financial situation. In 2017, the museum was able to acquire the painting back.
