Nationality: Dutch


Willem Troost was born in the Dutch town of Arnhem on June 14th, 1812. He received an artistic education from 1839 to 1840 at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, where he was under the tutelage of Bartholomeus Johannes van Hove (1790-1880) and the renowned landscape painter Andreas Schelfhout (1787-1870). During that time he already successfully exhibited at important shows in The Hague and Amsterdam. Later he would also exhibit his work for several years in Leeuwarden. After his artistic training Troost specialised in painting landscapes and beach scenes, which reveal the influence of his teacher Schelfhout. Further, Troost painted portraits and made pencil drawings and lithographs.
