A Cavalry Battle

Cavalry Encounter

Dirk Maas (September 12, 1659, Haarlem – December 25, 1717, Haarlem), was a Dutch Golden Age landscape painter.


According to Houbraken he was first a pupil of Hendrick Mommers, a Haarlem painter of vegetable market scenes, and then took lessons from Nicolaes Berchem, who he probably met through Mommers.[1] Maas became a follower of Berchem's Italianate landscape painting.[1] Eventually he took up with Jan van Huchtenburg, whereupon he devoted himself to painting horses.[1]

According to the RKD he was first became a member of the Haarlem Guild of Saint Luke in 1678, and in 1690 he accompanied William III of England's army, where he painted the Battle of the Boyne first-hand.[2] He was a pupil of Mommers, Berchem, and Huchtenburg who made prints, Italianate landscapes, and staffage for other painters.[2] In 1697 he became a member of the Confrerie Pictura, though he seems to have remained active in Haarlem also.[2]
