Johan Barthold Jongkind, 3 June 1819 – 9 February 1891,

Jongkind's most frequent subject was the marine landscape, which he painted both in the Netherlands and in France. His paintings are characterized by vigorous brushwork and strong contrast, which is why he is regarded as a forerunner of Impressionism.
