Landscape with a sheep herd with shepherd on the heath.
Willem 'Wilm' Steelink jr. (Amsterdam, 16 July 1856 - Voorburg, 27 November 1928) was a Dutch painter and graphical artist. Willem Steelink, together with F.P. ter Meulen and H.J. van Weele, is considered one of the 'imitators' of the Hague school painter Anton Mauve. Born in Amsterdam and trained as a history painter by his father in the Romantic tradition, the transition came when Steelink discovered the Gooise hei from 1877 onwards. Together with Hein Kever, he went to Laren in the summer, where he painted landscapes with sheep that were admired for their beautiful light. To be closer to his favourite subject, Steelink would settle in Hilversum after a few years, and then in Scherpenzeel and Laren. His work sold well, also by collectors in Germany, England and Canada. It was hand-signed.
