Gerard or Gérard de Lairesse (Liège,September 11, 1640 or 1641 - Amsterdam, June 1711) was a Dutch Golden Age painter and art theorist. He found Apollo (god) and Aurora (mythology) more worthy subjects than the ordinary milkmaids and lace makers of Vermeer. His broad range of talent included music, poetry, and the theatre, and he designed highly successful stage sets for the Theatre of Amsterdam. Gerard de Lairesse studied art under Bertholet Flemalle and his father Renier Lairesse[2]. In 1664 he was forced to flee Liège after a love affair gone wrong. He moved north to Utrecht in the Dutch Republic. When his talent was discovered by art dealer Gerrit van Uylenburgh, he relocated in 1667 to Amsterdam. At first, he was highly influenced by Rembrandt, but later he focused on a more French-oriented style similar to Nicolas Poussin. The French even nicknamed him the "Dutch Poussin".
