Maes, who was trained by Rembrandt, moved to Amsterdam in 1673 where he soon advanced to become the leading portraitist of the prosperous bourgeoisie. Orientated on the style of Flemish court portraiture, especially on the late works of Anthony van Dyck, Maes developed his own style that combined a representative mise en scène with elegance and dynamism. His continuously confident, fluid, and sometimes sweeping painterly style enabled the painter to meet the huge demand for his work.
