About Johannes Christiaan Schotel

Johannes Christiaan Schotel

Dordrecht 1787 - Dordrecht 1838

Johannes Christiaan Schotel had actually succeed his father, who owned a factory. However, he discovered early on that he could draw well. In 1805 he was member of the Drawing Societssy Pictura in Dordrecht. The brothers Abraham and Jacob van Strij had a lot of influence on his development. In 1808 Schotel took lesson from Martinus Schouman, a prominent painter of seascapes. It soon became clear that the pupil would surpass his master. Schotel grew into a versatile artist, who signed in the tradition of seventeenth-century marine as Willem van de Velde the Elder (1611-1693) and Ludolf Bakhuysen (1630-1708). His specialty was the appearance of vessels, gear and people against a background of sky and water. Schotel can be regarded as the primary marine painter of the nineteenth century. He had a large customer base and was known at home and abroad.
