Biography

While he is less known as his father Jozef, Isaac Israëls earned his fame as an impressionist painter. He initially followed in his father's footsteps at the art academy in The Hague, but then moved to Amsterdam. Together with his friend George Breitner, he became the best known member of the "Amsterdam Impressionisten". After extensive stays in Paris and London, he settled in Amsterdam. Israëls winning entry in the 1928 Olympic competition paintings, "The Red Rider", is a depiction of J.P. Leeuwenburgh, who rejected the portrait, after which Israëls entered it in the Olympic competition.
