Flinck, Govert TeuniszDate of birth and death: 1615 - 1660
Nationality: DutchUploaded artworks: 13
Baroque painter of portraits, genre, and narrative subjects, one of Rembrandt's most accomplished followers.
Flinck first studied in Leeuwarden and later entered Rembrandt's studio. As a painter of biblical and allegorical subjects, he at first modeled his style closely on Rembrandt's, as, for example, in his "Crucifixion" (1643?). Later he developed a more florid and oratorical manner, in which he appears to have been influenced by Rubens, as in the "Allegory in Memory of Prince Frederick Henry" (1654). Flinck's most successful works were portraits, and he was especially successful in his group portraits -- e.g., "A Goldsmith and His Family," and "Celebration of the Civic Guard at the Signing of the Peace of MĆ¼nster" (1648).
