Dutch Baroque Painter

Emanuel de Witte was a Dutch painter known for his intricate and finely detailed architectural scenes, genre paintings, and church interiors. He was born in Alkmaar, the Netherlands in 1617, and it is believed that he studied under Evert van Aelst in Delft.

De Witte was active as a painter in Delft from 1637 until 1652, where he became a member of the Guild of St. Luke. He then moved to Amsterdam, where he lived for the remainder of his life, becoming a prominent member of the artistic community.

De Witte is best known for his architectural scenes, in which he depicted interior spaces with great accuracy and attention to detail. His paintings often feature the play of light and shadow on the surfaces of walls and floors, and he was particularly skilled at depicting the textures of marble and other materials.

De Witte also painted genre scenes, which depict everyday life, as well as religious paintings, in which he often portrayed church interiors. His works are characterized by their calm and serene atmosphere, and they often have a spiritual or contemplative quality.

De Witte's paintings were highly prized during his lifetime, and he received numerous commissions from wealthy patrons. He died in Amsterdam in 1692, leaving behind a legacy of exquisitely rendered architectural scenes and genre paintings that continue to captivate viewers to this day.
