‘Indonesian dancer’ Isaac Israëls

Isaac Israëls (1865-1934), son of Jozef Israëls, one of the most respected painters of the Hague School, and Aleida Schaap, Isaac Israëls displayed precocious artistic talent from an early age. Beginning 1886, Israëls lived in Amsterdam and registered at the Royal Academy of Visual Arts to complete his schooling.

He spent the years 1921 to 1922 travelling in India and the Dutch East Indies, sketching and painting the vibrant life of South East Asia and notably the gamelan players of Bali. On his return, he settled in The Hague, where he remained for the rest of his life, nevertheless making regular trips abroad to London, Italy and the French Riviera.

He died in The Hague on 7 October 1934, aged 70, as a result of a street accident a few days before.
