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.

"After the end of the French occupation of the Netherlands in 1815, a new sense of pride emerged in all things Dutch.  Charles Leickert worked during this period and gained great notoriety for his winter landscape and cityscape paintings.  

Leickert was born on September 22, 1816 in Brussels, Kingdom of the Netherlands, and began his artistic training at the age of eleven.  In 1827, his father enrolled him in The Hague Drawing Academy.  Perhaps Leickert’s most influential teacher was Andreas Schelfhout (1787-1870), the renowned landscape artist best known for his winter scenes.  It was under Shelfhout that Leickert diligently learned to paint winter scenes, and rapidly absorbed his master’s working methods. 

In 1848 Leickert moved to Amsterdam where he resided until 1887.  Wanting to establish himself as an independent painter, Leickert knew that Amsterdam offered more opportunities for artists to exhibit and sell their work. 

The years following his arrival to Amsterdam until the 1870s proved to be most successful for Leickert.  It was during this period, he produced a wider variety of themes that included more beach and dune scenes, as well as the ever-popular winter scenes. 

In 1887, Leickert decided to end his artistic career, and moved to Mainz in Germany with his wife where he died on December 5, 1907. "
