Stuven was born in Hamburg where his first teacher was the still life painter Georg Hinz. According to the biographer Arnold Houbraken, after relocating to Holland he was a pupil of of Willem van Aelst in Amsterdam and, later, Abraham Mignon in Utrecht. He eventually woked on his own in Amsterdam, specializing in lush flower and fruit still lifes that echo many of the motifs of his teachers.
