Johannes Albert Neuhuys was one of the best known painters of the Laren School and a friend of many of the Hague School painters.

Neuhuys went to the Municipal Drawing School in Utrecht from 1858-1860 and then worked for the lithographer Van de Weyer in Utrecht, who unfortunately went bankrupt two years later.  From that time on, Neuhuys completely devoted himself to drawing and painting. From 1868 to 1872, he took lessons at the Antwerp Academy, where he was supported by a royal stipend. Here he painted interiors, specializing in the shine of satin clothes, after the example of the seventeenth century artist Pieter de Hooch.

In 1872 Neuhuys moved to Amsterdam, where he met Jozef Israëls, Anton Mauve and the brothers Jacob Maris and Matthijs Maris. In 1876 he moved to The Hague. Much like the other Hague School painters, his detailed manner of painting changed to a much looser stroke. His use of color was also inspired by Jacob Maris, and his watercolors became known for their sparkling transparency and the use of light.

The increasing urbanization around The Hague forced the painters of the Hague School to look further afield for their subjects. Israels pointed out to Neuhuys how picturesque Laren was, and he began to work there, eventually buying a home in Laren. Two years later, Anton Mauve also moved there and, together with him, Neuhuys was regarded as the founder of the Laren School.  He painted the farmers and weavers in their homes and rented a flax barn where he drew and painted spinners.

In 1885 he moved to Hilversum, from 1900 to 1910 he lived in Amsterdam, where he was known to many for his colorful Laren rural interiors work. He moved to Zurich in 1910, but continued to visit Laren in the spring and autumn.

He died on February 6, 1914 in Orselina near Locarno and he was buried in The Hague.

Biography from Odon Wagner Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Albert Neuhuys, took up the tradition of the finest Dutch Masters, and was taught by Gysbertus Craeyvanger (1810-1895) in Utrecht. He participated in world exhibitions, including the 1889 Exposition Universelle in Paris, where he received a silver medal. His work was also shown in the Munich exhibition, where he was awarded a medal in 1889, in Vienna where he won a medal in 1894 and in London.

Neuhuys' favourite subjects were history and portraiture. From 1870, following the examples of Josef Israels (1827-1911) and Jacob Maris (1838-1899), he found his true passion for painting in the representation of peaceful Dutch interiors. He was particularly attracted to the charm of young children and the grace of motherhood. Neuhuys was skilled at capturing the various effects of light on his subjects, depicting, for instance, sunlight shining through the narrow window of a fisherman's house so that fair-haired children appeared haloed. He successfully infused his figures with an intensity of expression, subtly conveying the mood and feeling of his scenes, with fine drawing and delicate colouring.
