Therese Schwartze at 16 by Johan Georg Schwartze
December 20, 1851|
|Died||December 23, 1918
Thérèse was the daughter of Johan Georg Schwartze (1814–1874), from whom she received her first training, before studying for a year under Gabriel Max and Franz von Lenbach in Munich. In 1879 she went to Paris to continue her studies under Jean-Jacques Henner. Her portraits are remarkable for excellent character drawing, breadth and vigour of handling and rich quality of pigment. She was married in 1906 to Anton van Duyl.
She was one of the few women painters who had been honoured by an invitation to contribute their portraits to the hall of painters at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Some of her best pictures, notably a portrait of Piet J Joubert, and Three Inmates of the Orphanage at Amsterdam, are at the Rijksmuseum, and one entitled The Orphan at the Boyman Museum in Rotterdam.
Her niece was the painter Lizzy Ansingh.
On 22 July 1918 her husband, Anton van Duyl, died. As Thérèse Schwartze was in bad health at that time (and tried to hide this), the death of her husband was a blow that she could not overcome easily. She died 23 December 1918 to a suddenly occurred disease. Thérèse was buried at Zorgvlied cemetery in Amsterdam. Later she was reburied at the Nieuwe Ooster cemetery in Amsterdam.
