Biography  
Aert Neer


Aert Van Der Neer began as an amateur figure painter while working as a steward for a wealthy family in Gorinchem. Most likely, the artist studied with Gorinchem landscape painter Robert Camphuysen. After Van Der Neer married, he returned to Amsterdam around 1630 to run an inn.  Two of his sons, Johannes and Eglon, were his students, and indeed, Eglon van der Neer became a highly regarded portrait and genre master.

Like many of his contemporaries, Aert van der Neer continuously struggled with financial difficulties.  Together with his son Johannes, he ran an inn at the Kalverstraat, but in 1662, bankruptcy forced him to sell most of his assets, including paintings.  Van Der Neer died in impoverished conditions in 1677.  ...  Displaying 750 of 1474 characters.
