About this artwork

Pieter de Hooch, a prominent artist from the Dutch golden age, is the genius behind 'The Courtyard of a House in Delft.' His talent for architecturally accurate depictions is evident in this artwork. Interestingly, his painting was created around the same time when books about household management, especially the role of women as housewives, were becoming popular. This painting seems to echo the sentiments in these books, as it features a maid caring for a young girl, while her mother gazes out at houses across the street.

About the artist

The well known Pieter de Hooch (1629 - 1684?) was a celebrated painter primarily known for his depictions of women and children in their everyday domestic environments, such as 'The Courtyard of a House in Delft'. In his later years, his artwork reflected the fashionable lifestyle of Amsterdam, using darker and richer colour palettes.

Originating from the humble beginnings as the son of a bricklayer, de Hooch was born in Rotterdam. His artistic journey is said to have been influenced by Nicolaes Berchem, a prominent Dutch painter known for his Italianate landscapes. De Hooch's affiliation with the St Luke guild in Delft began in 1655.

The 1650s saw his work possibly reflecting the influence of Carel Fabritius's perspective studies, who was present in Delft by 1650. His artistic style also bears similarities to that of Johannes Vermeer, implying a likely interaction between the two.

By 1660, de Hooch relocated to Amsterdam, where records last mention him in 1679, around the time his son Pieter Pietersz de Hooch was admitted to the Amsterdam lunatic asylum. His last known artwork dates back to 1684, but the circumstances of his death remain a mystery.
