Alexander Hugo Bakker Korff lived and worked in The Hague. At first he depicted historical and biblical scenes, but around 1859 began drawing and painting small-scale genre works in an extremely precise style. These were mainly domestic scenes with old spinsters, for which his two unmarried sisters stood model. His paintings have a humorous, sometimes ironic, undertone, which their carefully chosen titles bring out. Among his pupils was J.H. van Rossum du Chattel.
