Biography

Dutch painter and graphic artist Jos Seckel studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam (1899-1904) and the Académie Colarossi in Paris (1903). He lived and worked in Amsterdam and Rhenen, but mostly in Den Haag from 1909 until his death in 1945. He was a member of the Association Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam. Seckel died with his wife and son during the Bezuidenhout bombardment during World War II, when the Royal Air Force accidentally hit this Den Haag neighborhood instead of the German V2 launching facilities. Seckel was an etcher, lithographer and water colorist. He mainly produced portraits, still lifes, town scenes and figurative paintings but was also known for his copies of masters in the Louvre.
