Life of WIJNANDUS JOHANNES JOSEPHUS NUYEN


 Advertisements

 
  Dutch painter and printmaker. The son of a baker, he was apprenticed at the age of 12 to Andreas Schelfhout in The Hague, and from 1825 to 1829 he went to the Hague Tekenacademie, under the direction of Bartholomeus J. van Hove. With remarkable rapidity Nuyen grew into a highly productive painter of landscapes, marines and townscapes; his favourite themes were the Normandy and northern French coasts. In 1829 he was awarded a medal by the Felix Meritis society in Amsterdam for a watercolour of a forest landscape (Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum). After completing his training he made several trips to Belgium, France and Germany, sometimes in the company of A. Waldorp (1803-66). In 1836 he was admitted to the Koninklijke Akademie in Amsterdam, and one year before his death he married Schelfhout’s daughter.
