The English painter and illustrator John Charles Dollman was born in 1851 in the coastal town of Hove in East Sussex. Dollman is today considered the representative of British post-impressionism. He was the father of well-known zoologist Guy Dollman. The ancestors of the Dollman family came from France. John Charles Dollman's great-grandfather and grandfather were hired as hat makers at the British royal family. They enjoyed a high reputation among the royal family and the wealthy noble elite. Dollman's father did not continue the family's high-yielding and creative tradition, and instead ran a bookstore and a stationer's shop in the South of England.

As a young man, Dollman moved to the city of London to study at the University of South Kensington. Later, he also became a liberal arts student at the Royal Academy School. After graduating, he moved into his first studio in Bedford Park, London. The gifted artist was a member of the Royal Watercolor Society and exhibited several times at the Royal Academy between 1870 and 1912. In addition to his professional work as a painter, Dollman was also very successful as an illustrator. During and after the 1880s, he worked for several magazines as a graphic designer, including for the magazine "The Graphic". Art historians point out that especially Dollman's early work (drawings in black and white and in color) even influenced the art of famous painters like the Dutchman Vincent van Gogh .

The British oil paintings and drawings were equally popular with audiences, buyers and fellow artists. Today his pictures are in the collections of international galleries. His work "The Ship of Immigrants" from 1884, for example, was acquired by an art gallery in the Australian city of Adelaide.

The favorite motifs of the English artist were mythological in nature. An interesting example of this is the viking horde depicted in Dollman's 1912 painting "The Unknown." His best-known work, which he painted at the age of 37, bears the name "London Taxi Stand." There are at least three different variants of this picture. In general, Dollman often copied his original paintings and changed them slightly. He also studied anatomy of animals and used these artistic analyzes to create a remarkable work that depicts a group of wild horses in a stormy situation. Although Dollman's genre paintings, in which he portrayed people together with animals, were less well-regarded and found little appeal in the art scene, they are a central component of his artistic repertoire. Dollman died in 1934 in his native England at the age of 83 years. © Meisterdrucke
