Jacobus van Starkenborgh : Brief biography:
Van Starkenborgh, son of lawyer Edzard Tjarda van Starkenborgh Stachouwer (1797-1872) and his wife Aleida Warmoldina Lamberta Talma (1800-1830), was the second of the couple's six children. His father enjoyed an exceptional position as an aristocrat (baron), as mayor of Leens, as a member of the Provincial Parliament of Groningen (Provinciale Staten van Groningen) and as an important co-owner of the island of Schiermonnikoog in western Friesland. Like his younger brother Willem (1823-1885), van Starkenborgh showed an interest in painting. He studied landscape painting at the Amsterdam Academy of Art. After a trip to the United States that lasted from June 1849 to 1850 and not only brought him to New York City and Philadelphia, but also to Catskill Creek and the Catskill Mountains (New York) and the Potomac River (Virginia and West Virginia), he initially settled in Arnhem. In 1852 he moved to Dusseldorf, which had become a centre of European painting through the School of Painting in Dusseldorf. There he was a member of the Malkasten Artists' Association between 1854 and 1888. He was a member of the Association of Artists in Dusseldorf from 1861 to 1888. On August 17, 1854, he married Louise Henriette Helena Cremer (1828-1896) in Arnhem; she gave birth to her son Ludwig (Alexander Lodewijk, † August 14, 1872 at sea) on September 9, 1855 at Kleve. Van Starkenborgh made numerous trips from Dusseldorf to German, Swiss, Dutch and English regions, particularly Thuringia and participated in international exhibitions, for example in Austria (Künstlerhaus Vienna), the United States (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia) and the Netherlands (Koninklijke Akademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam). In 1856/1857 he lived in Kleve, in 1871 in Wageningen and from 1888 in Wiesbaden. Characteristic of his work are the romantic forest and river landscapes in different moods of the day, often animated by characters of rural life and animals.
