Arnold Marc Gorter (1866, Almelo – 1933, Amsterdam), was a 19th-century landscape painter from the Northern Netherlands.


According to the RKD he was a pupil of August Allebé and Pierre Cuypers at the Rijksnormaalschool voor Teekenonderwijzers in Amsterdam in 1888, and the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten there in (1889-1891).[1] He was a member of the Pulchri studio and Arti et Amicitiae.[1] A president of the artists' association Arti et Amicitiae, he was a favorite of the Dutch Queen Wilhelmina.[2]

Gorter is known for landscapes and won a gold medal at the Paris salon in 1910.[1] In 1922 he accompanied Wilhelmina of the Netherlands on a trip to Norway as her painting teacher.[1] Other less famous pupils of Gorter were Marinus Bies, Carel Lodewijk Dake, his niece Hinke Gorter, Maria Elisabeth van Hengel, Albertus Gerhard Hulshoff Pol, Johan Meijer(1885-1970), Leendert Johan Muller, and Henri van Os-Delhez.[1]
