Katwijk aan Zee, situated on the Dutch North Sea coast, is today a destination for many tourists. Many people in this country do not know that at the end of the 19th century it was not only a fashionable health resort but also a nationally renowned artists' colony. In its heyday, between 1870 and 1910, almost 500 artists from the Netherlands, Germany, England and America were here. The generation of artists who came here after 1850 Katwijk brought a realistic style of painting and went down in art history as the so-called 'Hague School'.
