More about the artist – Louis Dommersen (c.1862-?)
Louis Dommersen was English born, shortly after his famous painter father (Pieter Cornelis Dommersen also known as Dommershuijzen) moved from the Netherlands to England and married. His father was a famous Dutch artist specialising in Sea, Land and Riverscapes. Louis and his two brothers followed after their father in painting the same type of scene. Some say the work of his sons work is even better and more accomplished. But obviously they do not currently command the same values.
