Gerard van Nijmegen (Rotterdam, 18 November 1735 - Newbury, 29 April 1808)
Dutch painter, etcher and illustrator. He worked in the style of romanticism.
Son of painter Dionys van Nijmegen. He focused on dramatic scenery and forest views, in an early-romantic style, with much emphasis on atmosphere. Also characteristic are his impressive skies, inspired by 17th century painters such as Jacob van Ruisdael. He often chose non-Dutch mountainous regions, with waterfalls and wild trees. The inspiration for that was borrowed from two trips along the Rhine, which he did with his wife Susanna Catharina Nijgh, who also was a painter. He also worked on the Veluwe a lot. His work was admired by Barend Cornelis Koekkoek. He was considered as his predecessor.
