||Moor, Carel de (Dutch painter and printmaker, 1655-1738)
||Carel (or Karel) de Moor was one of the most important Dutch portrait painters of the period. He studied in Leiden with Gerrit Dou, Frans van Mieris I and Godfried Schalcken. In 1683 he became a member of the Leiden Guild of St Luke, and in around 1694 founded the Leidse Tekenacademie. De Moor also produced genre and narrative pictures, his style being close to the Leiden ‘fine' painters of the previous generation. Despite his success in these fields, he devoted more and more of his time to portraiture, for which he acquired a considerable reputation during his lifetime far beyond the borders of his native country.
