Notes

Eerelman was a Dutch painter; best known for his depictions of dogs and horses. He
showed an early aptitude for art and, against the wishes of his parents, enrolled at
the Academie Minerva in 1860, where he studied with J.H. Egenberger. After graduating,
he spent another year at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp). Later, he took
private lessons in the studios of Lawrence Alma-Tadema.

After a brief stay in Paris, he returned to Groningen and worked as a teacher at the
Academie from 1867 to 1874. He moved to Brussels that year to establish himself as a
painter but, for unknown reasons, relocated to The Hague in 1875, where he lived until
1902. It was during this time that he served as a court painter tot he Royal Family and did
several portraits of Queen Wilhelmina. Many of his works are still to be seen in the Royal
Palace Het Loo today.
