In two style rooms, you can still see two “fireplace pieces” by the Dordrecht painter Cornelis Kuipers. This prompted the last residents to start collecting more works by this relatively unknown Dordrecht landscape painter.
As his body of work is relatively small, the decision was made to also collect paintings from other painters who were active in Dordrecht around 1800. The most well-known and talented artist of the 18th century was Aert Schouman (1710 – 1792).
The museum also possesses an impressive painting by Johannes Christianus Schotel (1787 – 1838), widely regarded as the best marine painter of the 19th century. View beautiful pieces by landscape painters from Dordrecht at the Dordts Patrician House.
