Edwart Collier

1642-1708 Holland-Baroque

 

Brief Biography-It is considered Edwart Collier was from Breda in southern Holland as he was baptized there. He was tutored in Haarlem and came under the influence of Vincent Laurensz van der Vinne and Pieter Claesz. In 1667 he travelled to Leiden where he enlisted with the Guild of St Luke. After 1686 he moved to Amsterdam, and from 1693 to 1706 he worked in London. Trompe-l'œil and vanitas were his specialties in painting. He returned to Leiden in 1707 where it is thought he is buried, however a recent account by Paul Taylor states he was buried in London in 1708.
