de Witte, Emmanuel [Dutch, 1617?-1692]


[ 17th Century Artists | Baroque Artists ]

Emanuel de Witte (b. 1617, Alkmaar, d. 1692, Amsterdam), is a Dutch painter, active in his native Alkmaar, then in Rotterdam (by 1639), Delft (by 1641), and Amsterdam (by 1652). His range was wide, including history paintings, genre scenes (notably of markets) and portraits, but after he settled in Amsterdam he concentrated on architectural paintings (primarily church interiors, both real and imaginary).

His paintings are very different in spirit from the sober views of most Dutch architectural specialists, making powerful use of the dramatic play of light and shadow in the lofty interiors. His life was unhappy (he was constantly in debt) and when his body was found in an Amsterdam canal it was suspected that he had committed suicide.

The image that accompanies this article is by de Witte, painted circa 1660. Entitled, Interior of a Baroque Church, it is an oil on canvas painting measuring 49 x 57 cm., and is hanging at the Staatliche Museum in Berlin.
