Nicolaas van der Waay was a Dutch artist known for decoration, painting, watercolor, drawing and lithography He was active between 1870 and 1936. He designed effigies (portraits) for coins and stamps, including those of the young Queen Wilhelmina. The design of the first official banknote of 10 guilders (1904-1920) was of his hand. Van der Waay is best known for the allegorical representations he made for the Golden Coach, the special coach of the Dutch King.

Van der Waay's took his early art education from  LJH (Louis) Koopman, whose daughter he would later marry later. His work covers genre painting, landscapes, portraits, historical scenes and cityscapes.

Van der Waay studied at the Amsterdam Royal Academy from 1871 to 1875. After his training he shared a studio with a classmate, Jan Hillebrand Wijsmuller (1855-1925). In 1880 he won the Willink Collen Price for his painting Among friends.

In August 1883, he earned a ministerial grant of £ 1000, - for a study trip through Italy. He was more than 30 years as a lecturer at the National Academy and took along with Allebé the painting class on his behalf. Since 1891 he held a professorship at the said State Academy, succeeding Prof.. Barend Wijnveld. This position he held until his retirement in 1927.

One of his most famous works is Church Walk Burger Be Girls, painted around the turn of the 20th century, and preserved in the Amsterdam Historical Museum.  Every Sunday he went to see a long procession of the orphans at the Westerkerk on the Prinsengracht or the Nieuwe Kerk on the Dam. Van der Waay made a series of drawings and paintings to existing models, dressed in their typical red-black clothing.

At the end of the nineteenth century he was strongly influenced by his fellow painter, Isaac Israel, to become an impressionist painter looser in style. He became a master at capturing cityscapes and mundane scenes, often with women in the lead.

Several museums in the Netherlands possess work of Van der Waay, including the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam.

Van der Waay also drew illustrations for books, as published in the 1895 book, The girl Enchanted by Cora Ravine. In 1915 he made a watercolor for Liber amicorum of Coenraad Kerbert, the then director of Artis.
