Biography and information

Probably was a student of Rembrandt in Amsterdam, he worked first in this city, and then, from 1650, in Delft, where he later died along with his entire family in the explosion of a powder cellar.


Of all the artists of the Rembrandt school, he remained more independent than others, he looked at nature with his own eyes and reproduced it in all its simplicity, without embellishing Rembrandt chiaroscuro, but with a strong and sunny, juicy, pleasant brush. His paintings are a great rarity.
