Dutch painter of portraits, art dealer and collector, member of a noted painters family.
He lived and worked in The Hague , Weesp, Antwerp (1895-97, Académie des Beaux Arts), Amsterdam, Brussel (1901), and Paris (1902).
Simon Willem was the son and student of the impressionistic landscape painter Willem Maris. He was a nephew of Matthijs and Willem Maris. He painted woman's portraits, often with a child. But his major source of income was the trade of art and antique in his house on the Keizersgracht 498 in Amsterdam, which became a cultural centre.
