Biography Hendrik Heyligers
Hendrik Heyligers 1877-1967
Hendrik Heyligers was born to Dutch Parents in Batavia, now part of Indonesia, in 1877.
He studied in Paris, Munich and The Hague. At the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he was a student in the studio of Fernand Cormon who taught the rigorous methods and techniques of the Old Masters. Under his tutelage, Heyligers became influenced by the intimate informality of the seventeenth century Dutch School of which he subsequently became a champion and latter-day exponent.
Heyligers specialized in humble interiors populated by families attending to the tasks of daily life in their kitchens, the heart of the Dutch home. He invests these simple scenes with a dramatic and spiritual simplicity.
