Aert Schouman, also known as Aart Schouman, was an 18th-century painter and glass engraver from the Dutch Republic, born on March 4, 1710, in Dordrecht. At the age of 15, he apprenticed with the Dordrecht artist Adriaen van der Burg and Cornelis Greenwood, the son of his teacher for glass engraving, Frans Greenwood. Schouman was unique among painters as he kept a detailed diary of his professional life from 1733 to 1753. He began teaching his first art pupil in 1733 and continued teaching for the rest of his life. From 1742 until 1792, he was head of the Dordrecht Guild of St. Luke, and in 1751, he became regent of the Hague drawing school associated with the Confrerie Pictura of The Hague. Schouman was a leading artist in Zeeland between 1735 and 1785, during which he lived and worked in Dordrecht, The Hague, and Middelburg, and taught pupils in Dordrecht and The Hague. He was a prolific and versatile Dutch painter, glass engraver, printmaker, collector, and dealer, who produced still lifes, biblical and mythological themes, natural history studies, genre, historical and topographical works, portraits, sketches, etchings, and mezzotints. He passed away in The Hague on July 5, 1792. His cultural impact is significant as his work contributed to the advancement of art during the 18th century, particularly in the areas of glass engraving and natural history studies.
