Sebastiaan Theodorus VOORN BOERS [1828 Rotterdam-1893 Rotterdam]
A Dutch painter. Boers from an early age studied lithography under his father, S. Ph. Voorn Boers, a renowned lithographer and publisher of the time. He collaborated on many occasions with Mauritz Frederick Hendrick de Haas (1832-1895), a Dutch-American marine painter. The artist willingly painted landscapes, portraits, and certainly still lifes. His depictions of flowers and fruits enjoyed the biggest success, mostly due to his precise technique and meticulous style of painting. His works can be found in the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
