Biography   Jacques Meegeren


Jacques van Meegeren (26 August 1912 in Rijswijk, Netherlands - 26 October 1977 in Amsterdam), born Jacques Henri Emil van Meegeren, was a Dutch Illustrator and painter.

He is also considered to be a forger of the work of his father Han van Meegeren.  He was, however, less gifted and his forgeries adversely affected the reputation of his father's work.

Youth

Jacques van Meegeren was born 26 August 1912 in the little village of Rijswijk near The Hague, Holland, four months after the marriage of his parents. His future life would be affected by the notoriety of his father and the exotic descent of his mother who stemmed from an Indonesian royal family. In 1915 his sister Inez was born.
