This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Pieter Dommersen and his family were from Utrecht in Holland, although they moved to England at the end of the Nineteenth Century.  His family name was Dommenshuizen, but was changed for convenience when they came to England.

Dommersen came from a highly artistic family - his brother Christian C Dommersen, (fl. 1860-1890) was a marine painter, and his son William Raymond Dommersen is well known for his paintings of the Dutch waterways.

Dommersen traveled extensively around Europe on painting tours.  He was often accompanied by his son, and a similarity can be seen in their treatment of figures.  Dommersen is most famous for his marine subjects and his street scenes.  His works show excellent composition and depth, and he captures movement and atmosphere exquisitely.  He was as competent at painting traumatic seas, wild skies and terrified people during a storm, as he was at painting tranquil, serene estuaries.

He exhibited his work at the Royal Academy, the British Institution and the Suffolk Street galleries of the Royal Society of British Artists.
