Lighthouse Art - Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, Netherlands

I don't usually add photos other than lighthouses that I have photographed, however in going through my pictures from a recent trip, I found this one of a painting that I took at the newly re-opened Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The painting is titled 'Lighthouse In Breaking Waves' and the artist is Hendrick Willem Mesdag (1831-1915). It is a striking work of art and I thought it appropriate to share it on my blog.
