Paintings by Dutch Mostert
Christian H. Mostert (Dutch) was born into an artist family in the Netherlands in 1950, immigrated to Southern California in 1961, where he attended numerous Art classes in high school, college, and at the Art Center School of Design in Pasadena. He started his own design and illustration studio in 1970 doing mostly commercial art and illustration until 1990, when Dutch moved to Oregon to open up his own fine art studio and gallery.
Since then, Dutch has concentrated mostly on painting the maritime environment, and every thing that it entails, in both watercolor and oil, in the studio and on location, gathering numerous awards for his work on both coasts.
Dutch particularly enjoys painting various marine vessels (from and old wooden dinghy to huge ocean vessels) in extreme detail and complex compositions, especially those vessels of historical significance.
