Jacobus Nicolas Baron Tjarda van Starkenborgh, born in Holland, was a painter of landscapes and marine scenes. The artist visited America in the early 1850s and painted in the Catskills and West Virginia, though he was primarily based in Philadelphia. In 1852 he moved to Düsseldorf but continued to exhibit internationally, including in Austria, Pennsylvania, and The Netherlands.
