Biography   Nicolaes Elias


Nicolaes Elias (c.1590-1653/56)

The artist is thought to have begun painting portraits between 1610 and 1620, but until now his earliest dated painting was that of 1619, Dr. Sebastiaen Egbertz de Vrij's Osteological Presentation, in Amsterdam Museum.  Stylistic evidence suggests that Nicolaes was trained by Cornelis van der Voort, also of Antwerp, who was the leading portraitist in Amsterdam in the earlier 17th Century.  He soon established himself as one of the genre's foremost practitioners, enjoying the patronage of Amsterdam's patrician families.
