Hendrick Danckerts

c. 1627-1680 Holland/Dutch Golden Age

 

Brief Biography-Hendrick Danckerts of The Hague was first an engraver who copied works of Titian and other Italian masters. When he took up painting, he journeyed to Italy for instruction, spending several years there. Back in Holland, he gained a reputation for landscapes and was invited to England by King Charles II to paint seaports and royal palaces sights. He painted in England and Wales, and while living in London, he achieved a successful career selling his works. James II had twenty-eight of his paintings in his collection at one point. He returned to Holland in 1679, where he spent the remainder of his life. His Brother Johannes Danckerts was a history painter who lived in Amsterdam.
