The early work of Frederik Hendrik Kaemmerer (The Hague 1839 – Paris 1902) consists mainly of landscapes in the style of the early Hague School. Later, he bought a studio in Paris, but he would continue to travel down to The Hague on a regular basis during the rest of his life. Kaemmerer had success with his Impressionist works with both the public and the critics. He also made a name as a portrait painter, especially in Paris. He was prolific, sold well and had successful exhibitions in Paris, but also in the Netherlands.
Het Strand van Scheveningen was painted in 1885.
Het strand van Scheveningen | Frederick Hendrik Kaemmerer
The floor pattern based on Het strand van Scheveningen is projected on the 9th floor of Castalia. This is a floor of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, so the painting used here reflects on these themes. This office floor holds open and closed working places, meeting rooms and a lounge for informal meeting.
