Govaert Flinck (artist)



Govaert Flinck was a Dutch artist in the 17th century. Early in his relatively brief career, he died at age forty-five, Flinck moved to cosmopolitan Amsterdam. Flinck is known for creating Baroque paintings that include realistic-looking portraits and genre scenes of everyday life. He studied painting under Rembrandt van Rijn, who was also a Dutch Golden Age painter. Their styles were so similar that Flinck’s early paintings were sometimes confused with Rembrandt’s paintings.
