Geo Poggenbeek belongs to the late flowering of the Hague School. He depicted the Dutch landscape in paintings and watercolors in a dreamy tone reminiscent of Willem Maris and Anton Mauve. In his time, Poggenbeek was very successful with his atmospheric depictions of the Dutch landscape – often intimate places with cows or ducks by the side of a ditch, under the shelter of a grove. During the time he lived with his painter friend Nicolaas Bastert in Breukelen (1881–1887), he painted many river landscapes along the Vecht. He was a pupil of J.F.C. Scherrewitz.
