1619, Jun1679, Dec
a Dutch Golden Age painter that focused mainly on painting subject from the Bible. Victors was born in Amsterdam. He was known in Haarlem on a taxation catalog in 1722 as a student of Rembrandt van Rijn. Like many painters in Amsterdam after the rampjaar of 1672, he fell onto bad times and took a position as ziekentrooster, a combi-job as professional nurse and cleric, with the Dutch East India Company in 1676. He died soon after arrival in Indonesia. He was a conscientious member of the Reformed Church, and for this reason he avoided creating art which depicts Christ, angels, or nudity.
