Artist's Biography & Works For Sale

Pieter Cornelis Dommersen (Dommershuijzen) was born in Utrecht in The Netherlands. He moved to England in around 1855 and stayed there until his death in Hexham 1918. Dommersen painted coastal and river landscapes, capturing the interior of villages and towns along rivers, a genre which had a revival during the 19th Century. His art is very much loved because he harmoniously joins together the people, sky, buildings, clouds and backgrounds “…in which the seagulls float through.”

His younger brother Cornelis Christiaan Dommersen and son William Raymond Dommersen were also painters and he often travelled with them to paint in countries including America, Belgium, The Netherlands, Britain and France. All three Dommersens painted the same genre of paintings.

His works have been exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Society of British Artists, the Suffolk Street Galleries and the British Institute. His works can also be found in museums in Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht and many in the United Kingdom.
