Gerbrand van den Eeckhout

1621-1674 Netherlands-Baroque

 

Brief Biography-Gerbrand van der Eeckhout (Gerbrandt van der Eechout) of Amsterdam, was a close friend and pupil of Rembrandt. His master had a profound influence on his work, particularly with his religious paintings. His portraits may be considered superior to Rembrandt's regarding the likeness of sitters, and his genre paintings, however, are seen closer to the style of Gerard Terborch.
