This exhibition Isaac Israels took place in different museums of The Hague (Haags Historisch Museum; Panorama Mesdag; Muzee Scheveningen; Haags Gemeentearchief; Louis Couperus Museum)
Isaac Israels probably is the most famous Dutch impressionist. In the beginning, the city life fascinated him. Together with G.H. Breitner he searched the town for contemporary motifs: street scenes, cafes, theatres.In the nineties, bright coloured beaches (Scheveningen) came to existence and after 1900 the fashion houses became his most important source of inspiration. In 1923, after ten years in Paris and London, Israels returned to The Hague where he often worked backstage in the Scala theater.
