Artist:

Gerard de Lairesse (1641–1711)

Lairesse was originally from Liege and came to Amsterdam in 1667. Rembrandt was a major influence at first and later he became interested in French neoclassical art. He applied these new ideas to his work, mainly painting themes from Antiquity. De Lairesse produced numerous wall hangings and ceiling paintings featuring realistc trompe-l’oeil scenes. After De Lairesse lost his sight around 1690 and concentrated on lecturing on art theory. He published these in two volumes: Grondlegginge der teekenkonst (1701; A Treatise of the Art of Drawing) and Het groot schilderboeck (1707; The Principles of Drawing).

Lairesse’s writings were influential on a number of 18th century artists.
