Johannes Albert Neuhuys (Utrecht, 10 June 1844 – Locarno (Switzerland), 6 February 1914) was one of the best-known painters from the Laren School, who became known primarily through Neuhuys’ way of interior painting. Neuhuys was born in Utrecht and was trained as a lithographer by Gijsbert Craeyvanger. However, when the lithographic printing company, in which he worked, went bankrupt, he decided to become a painter, just like his eldest brother Jan Neuhuys.

In 1868, Neuhuys moved to Antwerp, where he attended the evening courses at the Academy of Fine Arts for four years. During the day he painted romantic performances and history pieces, with which he garnered a certain success. In 1871 he was even the first to receive a royal subsidy for three years. Neuhuys came to Amsterdam in 1872, but he was no longer interested in historical painting. He went to Nunspeet and to Het Gooi, because he wanted to paint to nature. He made friends with the Hague Scholers Jozef Israëls, Anton Mauve and the brothers Jacob and Matthijs Maris and went to live in The Hague in 1876. He often worked with Israëls in Het Gooi, and in 1883 he even went to live there. Until 1885 Neuhuys lived in Laren, next to Mauve on the Naarderweg, and from 1885 to 1888 he lived in Hilversum. From 1900 to 1910, Neuhuys lived in Amsterdam again, but he often continued to work on his numerous well-known colorful country interiors in Laren. In the meantime he had also made a number of trips. In 1904 he stayed in the United States for the first time. In 1911 he settled in Zurich, because of the health of his son. Neuhuys died at the age of 69 in Locarno (Switzerland).
