Otto Eerelman (Groningen, March 23, 1839 - Groningen, October 3, 1926) was a painter, etcher and lithographer best known for his realistic sketches and paintings of dogs and horses. As a court painter, he also produced several portraits of Princess Wilhelmina in her younger years and later as queen. In addition to the various paintings Eerelman did for the royal family, such as a portrait of the nurse Evertje Schouten, a painting of eight-year-old Wilhelmina dressed in a white amazon suit and pictured with her pony "Baby" (perhaps best known because of the Orange depicted ), several other works have also become known to a wide audience.
