Willem Haenraets, 1940 | Impressionist painter

With soft colors, the artist conjures up a romantic world of beautiful illusion on his canvasses. Hollandaise painter Willem Haenraets was born in Rotterdam and his talent was discovered at an early age.
Haenraets was just 16 when he started his training at the academy in Maastricht, which he followed with further education at the Antwerp art academy.
Granted a scholarship for talented students, he received his artistic polish as a master craftsman student of the renowned professors Sarina and Vaarten.
Haenraets’ creations are evidence that the great tradition of the Belgian-Dutch school has received a flourishing sequel. The old masters certainly would have given him a nod of approval.

Vermeer | A Young Woman standing at a Virginal, 1670-1672

The richly dressed lady playing a virginal stands in a prosperous Dutch home with paintings on the wall, a marble-tiled floor, and a skirting of locally produced Delft blue and white tiles. The two paintings on the wall behind her cannot be identified with certainty.
The small landscape on the left and the painting decorating the lid of the virginal resemble works by Vermeer🎨’s Delft colleague Pieter Groenewegen.
The second painting, attributed to Cesar van Everdingen, shows the motif of Cupid holding a card. This figure derives from a contemporary emblem. It may either refer to the idea of faithfulness to one lover or, in conjunction with the virginal, to the traditional association of music and love.
