Biography from the Archives of askART

Philip Lodewijk Jacob Frederik Sadee is an artist who belongs to the Hague School* of painters.
Sadée started painting at the age of 20. He studied in The Hague both at the Academy and in the studio of J E J van den Berg (1802-1861).

In 1866 with his fellow student Julius van de Sande Bakhuyzen, Sadee travelled to Düsseldorf where he studied for some months. He began painting biblical scenes and history paintings,and later he focused on daily life. In Scheveningen he came into contact with the fisherman's life. Here he was fascinated with the beach and the dunes, which were a source of inspiration for him. Typical of Sadée are the bright colors.

Sadee travelled widely; he painted in the Pas de Calais and travelled in France, Germany, Belgium and Italy. He exhibited in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague in the years 1853-1903, and was elected to the Arte et Amicitiae in Amsterdam.

He taught at the Academy in The Hague and numbered Hendrikus M. Horrix (1845-1923) amongst his pupils.
