Nicolaes Maes

(1634-1693)

Biography


Nicolaes Maes was born in 1634 in Dordrecht. He worked in Rembrandt’s Amsterdam workshop after he had had professional training with an unknown painter in Dordrecht. His earliest works are religious scenes with something of Rembrandt’s spiritual emotion. But this was not the type of painting most natural to Maes and his own temperament led him to look for his own way in painting. Read Nicolaes Maes's Full Biography
