Nicholas Bott - Hodgins Art Auctions

Nicholas Bott Artist

Canadian [1941-2021]

Nicholas J. Bott (1941-2021) was born in Holland. At the age of seventeen Bott moved to Canada and settled in Smithers, where he fell in love with the scenic beauty of the British Columbia landscape. He spent many days on remote mountain slopes, some locations accessible only by helicopter.

“Bott’s works reveal not only an ever-growing confidence with the medium, but a growing sense of lyricism and visual poetry in the interpretation of his various subjects. His paintings show spontaneity and sureness of hand commensurate with his ability to distill and transform landscape and rural motifs into refined aesthetic visualizations.” (Jacek Malec, Magazin Art, Fall 1999 issue, p.134)

Nicholas J. Bott studied art at the University of British Columbia and holds a diploma from the Chicago School of Art. Inspired by the loose style of Vincent Van Gogh and the Canadian Group of Seven, blending his traditional European values with contemporary developments of the new world, his paintings have evolved continuously to the impressionistic style of his work. The simplified shapes in the landscapes were filled with vibrant color. The brushwork literally radiated with energy of the forces of nature. The images were vivid and compelling.

Nicholas J. Bott’s works were held by numerous major corporate and private collectors around the world. His interpretations of the awe-inspiring landscape were equally prized by residents and visitors.
