Therese Schwartze was born on December 20, 1851 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. She was the daughter of painter Johan Georg Schwartze, who grew up in Philadelphia and trained in Dusseldorf. Her portraits, mainly of the Amsterdam elite, are remarkable for the excellence in character drawing, the breadth and vigour of handling and the wealth of pigment. She signed her works ‘Th. Schwartze’ and married Anton van Duyl at the end of her life in 1906, after which she signed her works ‘Th. V Duyl.Schwartze’. She is one of the rare female painters who have been honoured by an invitation to bring her portraits to the painters' room at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Some of her best works, including a portrait of Petrus Jacobus Joubert, and ‘Three Inmates of the Orphanage at Amsterdam’, are exhibited at the Rijksmuseum, and another one titled ‘Five Amsterdam Orphans’ at the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam.
