This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Thomas Heeremans was born as the first of nine children and was baptized in the Reformed Church in Haarlem in May 1641.

A notary’s record from 1659 indicates that Heeremans may have studied under Van Everdingen. According to van Thiel-Stroman, this must refer to Cesar van Everdingen (1616/17-1678), as Allaert van Everdingen (1621-1675) had already moved from Haarlem to Amsterdam in 1652.

No influence of the classicist painter can be found in the work of Heeremans, by whom no figure studies are known today. However his style, particularly notable in his depiction of river scenes, is very much influenced by the slightly older Haarlem landscape painter Klaes Molenaer (1630-1676), though Heeremans brings a greater vibrancy both in palette and movement to the rather melancholic scenes of Moleaner.

He often painted the beach at Scheveningen and the village and ruins of Edgmond. His pictures frequently go in pairs.

Also active as a dealer, Heeremans joined the Guild of St. Luke in 1664. He was buried in Haarlem at the Noorderkerkhof on 22 January 1694.


Heeremans is represented in the following collections: Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; Sheffield Galleries & Museums, UK, amongst others.
