About the Artist: Having found just one artist with the last name of Niehorster, this painting was attributed to Leonardus Josephus Niehorster. It compares favorably with images of other work of the attributed artist in both style and subject, but a descendent of the artist has stated that the painting is not by Leonardus Josephus Niehorster. A second person has offered the same opinion, thus, the listing has been changed to "Niehorster". The reasons given for the stated opinions were not compelling enough to exclude the possibility of this being by that artist, however. Leonardus Josephus Niehorster (1882 - 1957) was a Dutch etcher, painter, draftsman, art critic, and lecturer, who studied with Ko Cossar in 1898.
Seasoned collectors will readily understand that many artists varied their style, subjects, methodology, and signatures over a lifetime of work. Examples of work that defies comparison to an artist's complete oeuvre are probably more common than we realize, since there is resistence to accept those works that don't "conform".
