Dutch painter Gerrit Willem Dijsselhof was one of the most prominent artists from the 'Nieuwe Kunst' the name under which Art Nouveau gained recognition in the Netherlands. Dijsselhof became a member of the Dutch zoo Natura Artis Magistra where he especially enjoyed watching their new aquarium which opened in 1882. He spent many afternoons after his studies at the art academy sketching and painting the sea creatures and fish, such as pikes and goldfish.
