FLINCK, Govert Teunisz.
(b. 1615, Kleve, d. 1660, Amsterdam)

Portrait of Rembrandt

Oil on wood, 57 x 46 cm
Staatliche Museen, Berlin

Govert Flinck, who worked in Rembrandt's studio from 1633 to 1636 and whose style in the 1630s was enormously influenced by his master's, became a portraitist later in his career, greatly sought after by the Amsterdam bourgeoisie.

Earlier this painting was catalogued as a self-portrait of Rembrandt.
