Biography

De Vries was born in Rotterdam. He made a grand tour and traveled to Southern France (and possibly Italy) in the 1620s. After his return north, he later made several trips to Paris and Antwerp. In 1632-1633 he made a portrait of the regents of the city orphanage in Amsterdam that is still installed on the wall for which it was designed in the regent's room. According to the RKD he became a member of the Confrerie Pictura in 1644, and is known for portraits and landscapes.[1]

Some of his works are displayed at the National Gallery of Victoria.[2] A painting at the Beecroft Art Gallery shows use of his thumb to apply paint to a lace collar in a portrait.[3] He painted several wedding portraits in which the man is situated on the left and the woman on the right.[4] Various sources indicate De Vries died in either 1650 or 1662, in The Hague.[1]
