Philips Koninck (1619-1688)

Philips Koninck of Rotterdam was taught by his brother, Jacob. He married in 1640, and moved to Amsterdam around the same time. There he may have worked at Rembrandt’s studio. Koninck seems to have been part of Rembrandt’s circle of friends. The latter’s influence is evident in his early work, with its loose brushwork and warm colours. Today, Koninck is appreciated for his panoramic landscapes, with broad vistas shown from a high vantage point. In Koninck’s own day, he was known more for his genre paintings and portraits.
