There is little known about Clara’s personal life, supposedly her talent was inherited from her father. The oldest paintings that wore signed by Clara date back from when she was only 14, and her most productive period was between 1607 and 1621, most of them being commissioned by the aristocracy of those times.

Being one of the oldest dutch painters, Clara’s paintings are highly valuable, in a recent auction, one of her paintings was sold for 2.9 million $.
