Elshot, just like visual artists Jules Brand-Flu and Rudi Chang, belonged to the first Group of artists who did not complete their art studies in the Netherlands, but in Suriname at Nola Hatterman (1899-1984). After the First World War, Hatterman got lessons from painter Charles Haak in perspective, anatomy and art history. It was at this time that she mastered the originally German art movement ‘The New Objectivity’. The classical branch of this art movement especially, played an important role in her typical method of art education which started to take shape in Suriname around 1954.
