The artist Harry Maas painter of female beauty.

Harrie Maas had a passion for drawing and painting from a young age. In Roermond, he had his first lessons from M.G. Hölscher and in Nijmegen at the Anton Kloosterhuis. After moving to Eindhoven with his family in July 1931, he continues to develop and learns from his fellow artists at the Eindhoven Sketch Club. He was the driving force behind this club for decades. He exhibited his works mainly on group exhibitions of art group In Consten Een, the Eindhoven Sketch Club, the Zuid-Nederlandsche Onafhankelijken, the Breda Kunstkring, and Kunstkring De Kempen after the Second World War. After 1950, he barely holds exhibitions. He had already built up a circle of admirers and through fixed art dealers, his works find suitable buyers. In 1974, he marries Netty Michels in Nijmegen, who paints in a naive, narrative style. In the 1930s, Harry Maas gains fame as a draughtsman and painter of portraits and figure paintings. In addition, he made linocuts and began etching. Around the war, he made many (flower) still lifes. Around 1950, following his travels to England and France, he began making many cityscapes and landscapes. His passion for trains is a recurring theme in his oeuvre, which often make him rely on nostalgic images and in his depiction of figures and townscapes, he often chose fashionably dressed, graceful girls. Female nudity, either half-dressed or pungently nude, is the main theme throughout his works; he received great name recognition from the countless elaborated or schematic nudes of (school) girls that posed for him.
