Matthijs Naiveau (1647-c.1726)

Naiveu is best known for his religious, allegorical and genre scenes, and his portraits (which are rarer) show the influence of the late work of Caspar Netscher (c. 1636-1684).

He was the son of a wine merchant from Rotterdam and began his training with Abraham Toorenvliet (c. 1620–1692), the Leiden artist.  From 1667 to 1669 Naiveu was apprenticed to Rembrandt's pupil Gerrit Dou, who received 100 guilders a year (a very large sum at the time) for instructing Naiveu.  In 1671, Naiveu entered the Leiden Guild of St Luke, of which he became the head in 1677 and again in 1678, and he subsequently moved to Amsterdam.
