De Meijier lived and worked in The Hague and first followed an administrative training before coming to work at Schelfhout's studio in the early 1930s. He befriended his teacher, and in 1836 they traveled together to Germany. De Meijier was very talented and painted winter and summer landscapes, including panoramas and moonlight scenes. The staging of his paintings is strongly reminiscent of that of Schelfhout. In the period 1830-1866 he regularly exhibited his work at the annual Exhibition of Living Masters.
