Moonlit night

I had never heard of Dutch artist Jan Sluijters (1881 - 1957) until my wife came across him in a book recently. I was enchanted by his work, which ranges over time from post-impressionism via fauvism and expressionism to realism. A good example of his work is this moonlit landscape from 1912, with obvious fauvist influences. More on Sluijters in the wikipedia article linked to below.
