Biography Everardus Benedictus Gregorius Pagano Mirani (1810 - 1881). Mirani grew up in the Golden Age of Dutch painting, dominated by the Romantic landscape genre.  This  movement founded by Barend Cornelis Koekkoek (1803-1862) and Andreas Schelfhout (1787-1870). Mirani was a pupil of Schelfhout and developed a Romanticised style of landscape painting himself. Mirani painted the Dutch landscape in all seasons including forests, views of Harlem and the frozen canals and rivers scenes with skaters that the Dutch loved so much.

His works can be found in the main cities in the Netherlands. Mirani was a true Dutch Romantic painter in the great tradition of his tutors Schelfhout and Koekkoek.
