Herman or Hermanus Adrianus Charles Bogman was possibly the son of Hermanus Charles Christian Bogman.
He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague and went on to paint chiefly city-scenes .
He was influenced by Willem de Zwart who gave him several advices.
Just as De Zwart, Bogman was inspired by the streets, squares of the court capital.
Until the age of 50 years old, Bogman painted in oil, but later on he discovered the watercolour. In a short period he was able to achieve the same bearing-power and depth in watercolour as in oil. Bogman had several exhibitions in Amsterdam.
This painting is a scene of the famous ’Koepelkerk’ in Amsterdam (at the Singel, nowadays a part of the Renaissance Hotel).
