Biography Van der Bilt

Johannes Franciscus Willebrordus van der Bilt (Amsterdam, November 7, 1882 - New York, † December 1943) was a Dutch landscape painter. He also created murals and designed tapestries.

Johan van der Bilt studied at the Amsterdam Royal Academy of Fine Arts and, starting in 1915, at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris under Fernand Sabatté. He then settled as a freelance painter in Antwerp and from there undertook study trips to Southern Europe and North Africa. He was in Normandy in 1924, around Capri in 1928, and in Algiers in 1933.

His work is characterized by broad brushstrokes and a sketch-like appearance, with the underlying surface often visible between the brushstrokes. The landscapes he encountered during his travels are a recurring theme in his paintings and drawings.

In addition to paintings, Van der Bilt also created monumental murals, including one in 1938 in the Amsterdam Saint Nicholas Church, and he designed tapestries. At the end of the 1930s, he moved to the United States and also designed tapestries there for a tapestry factory.

In 1930, he received the Prize from the Quellinus Drawing School. He exhibited his works at the Paris Salon des Indépendants in 1914 and 1924.
