Dutch 1889 – 1962 

David Abraham Bueno de Mesquita was a Dutch artist born in Amsterdam. He was known for his paintings of landscapes, portraits, figures, and biblical scenes. He was also an illustrator and cover designer, mainly for children’s books. Bueno de Mesquita studied at the Rijksschool voor Kunstnijverheid (National School of Applied Arts) between 1909 and 1913 and then attended the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (National Academy of Visual Arts) from 1921 to 1922. He lived in Madrid and Rome for a few years before settling in Florence in 1929, where he remained until his passing in 1962.

Bueno de Mesquita won the Prix de Rome in 1913 and the Willink van Collenprijs (a now discontinued Dutch art award) in 1921. He participated in the paintings category of the art competitions at the 1928 Summer Olympic Games held in Amsterdam.
