This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Dr. Geert Kocken of the Netherlands:

Dorus Arts
Nijmegen The Netherlands 1901- Montreal Canada 1961

Dorus Arts was born in 1901. He took lessons at the studios of Gorter, Jan Toorop, Van Vucht Tijssen, and Jurres. With these masters he perfected his talent for drawing, etching and painting.

He belonged to a group of painters in Nijmegen called "In Consten Een", who were active in the first part of this century. He was also a member of the Pulchri Studio in The Hague.

His first exhibition was in 1929 in De Waag building in Nijmegen. A year later he was awarded an honorary medal from the city council. Between 1930 and 1961, his landscapes, beach scenes and twilight and moonlight panoramas became famous throughout the Netherlands and in Germany, as well as in the United States and Canada.

In 1955, art dealers in Montreal arranged his first exhibition in North America, the success of which prompted him to move, with his family to Canada. Although he liked the Canadian landscape he suffered very much from homesickness. In 1961 he died in Montreal. Ten years later, the Nijmegen Museum exhibited an overview of his work.

In 1999 the Kohesie Art Foundation presented a documentary on the life of Dorus Arts, together with a catalogue on his works.

From November 2001 until January 2002 an exhibition on his landscape paintings takes place in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
