About Anthonie Pieter Schotel

De Dordtse schilder Anthonie Pieter Schotel schilderde stadsgezichten en stillevens, maar zijn grote liefde was het schilderen van water en schepen. Vooral rond de Zuiderzee, met uitzeilende botters en de intieme rust van de vallende avond op het water. Na de aanleg van de Afsluitdijk werkte hij ook in Zeeland en Rotterdam. Zijn watergezichten zijn bij voorkeur opgezet in tere, grijze tonen met door gefilterd licht vervaagde vormen. In 1923-1924 en 1936 reisde hij naar Frankrijk, met name naar Normandië, Bretagne en de Rivïèra maar ook naar Parijs, waar kleurige stadsgezichten tot stand kwamen. Musea: o.a. Dordrechts Museum en het Zuiderzeemuseum in Enkhuizen. Link: LINK

Anthonie Pietsser Schotel, descendant of the famous marine-painter Johannes Christiaan Schotel wanted from an early age to be a painter. In 1901 he received his first and only painting lessons from Hermanus Gunneweg. According to the wishes of his parents, he initially worked in the trade, at the age of 25 (1915) he rented a studio at the Boomkade in Dordrecht and he painted there ten years with short breaks for travels to Bruges in 1920 where he met the Belgian painter Maurice Sijs (1880-1972), in 1923 he made a trip to the French coast, including St. Malo. In 1926 he left to Volendam and Villefranche in southern France. From 1929 to 1959 he lived in Laren with short breaks for travels to Normandy, Brittany and Paris in 1936.

Schotel painted many river and sea views and drew sea, river and harbor views, where the port of Volendam was favorite but also Urk, the Zuiderzee and the Loosdrecht lakes also had a great attraction. On his first paintings a grayish tone dominated. Later he used pastel colors and his brush lining less wide and strong. Schotel practiced the pointillist technique.
