Reinier Zeeman (Reinier Nooms)

Dutch painter and printmaker Reinier Zeeman, also known as Reinier Nooms, was born in Amsterdam. His early career was as a Seaman (hence the name Zeeman) but he later turned to painting, working in a Dutch realist manner. Zeeman’s works demonstrate his knowledge of the design and rigging of ships and so present an accurate record of contemporary Dutch shipping. Zeeman had a successful career and for a time worked for the Brandenburg Court at Berlin. However, he better known as an engraver of shipping scenes. His paintings can be found in the collections of the Louvre, Paris, the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, and the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.
