Biography from Sotheby's New York:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Herman Henstenburgh was one of three notable still-life and natural history artists from Hoorn, who established that town as a centre for their very distinctive, highly detailed and decorative watercolor and gouache style.  All three also famously followed parallel careers as pastry-bakers.

The eldest of the these artists was Johannes Bronckhorst (1648-1727), who was Herman Henstenburgh's teacher as both artist and baker.  The trio was completed by Herman's son, Anton Henstenburgh (1695-1781). 

According to the near-contemporary chronicler, Johan van Gool, Henstenburgh started out by depicting birds and landscapes, and then broadened his repertoire after about 1695 to include flowers and fruit pieces.  Van Gool went on to explain the extraordinary richness of Henstenburgh's colors by claiming that the artist had invented a new type of watercolor.
