Biography

Little is know of the life of Hendrick Munnichhoven before he came in contact with Count Magnus Gabriel De La Gardie during the Swedish invasion of Prague in 1648. There are no records of a person named Munnichhoven in the Dutch archives. However, it is likely that he corresponds with an artist named Hendrick Munnekus, who was active in Utrecht during the 1620s and 1630s and later moved to The Hague. Munnichhovens connection to De La Gardie, for whom he executed many portraits, made him a prominent figure in the artistic circle of Queen Christina in the early 1650s. He was active as court painter between the years 1650-1662.
