Joris Van Der Haagen
(c. 1615 - 1669)
Joris Van Der Haagen was active/lived in Netherlands. Joris Haagen is known for painting.
Joris van der Haagen was the son of the artist Abraham van der Haagen (d. 1639), who probably introduced Joris to the art of painting. Joris was born between 1613 and 1617, in Arnhem or Dordrecht. He was a painter and draftsman of topographic views, woodlands and panoramas. He depicted diverse sites around The Netherlands and Brussels. He sometimes collaborated with Nicolaes Berchem and Adriaen van de Velde who contributed the staffage, while Dirck Wyntrack added waterfowl and animals in his landscapes.
van der Haagen's family moved to The Hague around 1639, and there he married Magdalena Thijmansdr de Heer. Later he became a member of the guild and a citizen; he was named deacon of The Hague guild in 1651, and headman in 1653. He was also one of the founders of the Confrerie Picture of the same city, where he taught other artists including Jan Jansz Smidt and Joris' son, Jacobus (1657-1715).
