First edition, first printing. ‘Van der Meer follows in the tradition of the great Dutch landscape painters, but instead of those charming genre pictures … we are given muddy fields and mightily striving, often overweight and overage footballers’ (Parr & Badger). Imbued with a love of both his subjects – football and the Dutch landscape – and inspired by Hans Aarsman’s Hollandse Taferelen (1989), the volume became a quick classic, and was later published in English as Dutch Fields (2004).
Parr & Badger, II, 85.
