Sierk Schroder

[Netherlands] (b 1903/d 2002)

"Sierk Schroder studied at the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague from 1922 to 1925.. (..) He then worked as an apprentice of André Lhote in Paris ... (..) From 1960 to 1968 Schröder was professor in free painting at the Rijksacademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam , until he stopped when the artisanal side of artistry increasingly disappeared from education and made way for applied and conceptual art. (..) Schröder drew and painted many children's portraits, especially of children from well-to-do backgrounds as well as well-known figures from political, cultural and social life. (..) Among other things, he acquired familiarity through his portraits of members of the royal house. He portrayed Queen Wilhelmina  and the portrait of Queen Beatrix that hung in the House for a long time . From 1985 Schröder concentrated exclusively on free work. This consisted of natural works, realistic watercolors and drawings of trees, flowering branches, fruits and mosses."
