Biography
G. A. Ridder van Rappard, (1858-1892) portrait by unknown photographer

Anthon Gerard Alexander van Rappard (May 14, 1858, Zeist – March 21, 1892, Santpoort) was a Dutch painter and draughtsman. He was a pupil of Lawrence Alma-Tadema and for about four years a friend and mentor of Vincent van Gogh, who is said to have appreciated him for his social engagement, among other reasons.

Biography

Labourers at the Ruimzicht brickyard, circa 1885

According to the RKD he worked in Paris, Brussels, Utrecht, Amsterdam, and Terschelling before moving to Santpoort. He studied at the Rijksakademie and was a member of the Utrecht artist societies "Kunstliefde" and " Utrechtse Kunstkring" (which he founded with his friend Ludwig Willem Reymert Wenckebach), and "Arti et Amicitiae" in Amsterdam.

The letters Van Gogh wrote to Van Rappard during their correspondence in the years 1881-1885 are a main source for Van Gogh's biography and work. Today, Van Rappard's works are rare due to his short life. His paintings are highly prized.
