Dutch Romantic landscape painting, such as that of Barend Cornelis Koekkoek, can be very beautiful but also a little lethargic. Tavenraat loved drama. His landscapes express strong emotions, as is evident from his choice of subject matter: trees lashed by a storm rains and lightning, deer fleeing a forest fire. The intensity of the image is underscored by a loose and dynamic painting style.
