Brief Biography-David Vinckboons was from Mechelen, Belgium. His family settled in Amsterdam where he eventually died. His specialty was in genre paintings which he was renowned for. He was taught to paint by his father and his work was influenced by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Distemper was his first medium which his father used, but he later moved to oil for his later works. The German artist Johann Rottenhammer inserted many of the figures in his landscapes. His art was well liked in Holland and he enjoyed considerable success during his lifetime.
