Gezicht te Koblenz (1835)

In the year 1835 Johannes Bosboom together with his Hague colleague and painter friend Salomon Leonardus Verveer (1813-1876) made a study trip to the German Rhine provinces. By way of Utrecht and Arnhem they travelled past Düsseldorf and Cologne, with the German city of Koblenz as their destination. To them this journey was an artistic challenge due to their first introduction to foreign architecture, regional dress and landscapes outside the country’s borders. On their way to the historic city of Koblenz, where the river Rhine and Moselle join together, Bosboom made many sketches and works on paper. A study of the work offered here, in watercolour on paper, is in the collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam (inv. No. RP-T-1921-470).
