Gerbrand van den EECKHOUT
Born 1621, Amsterdam–Died 1674, Amsterdam
In surprising contrast to his normal Rembrandtesque style are a number of highly finished genre subjects—guardroom scenes, backgammon players, and so on. An example of the early style, once thought to be by Rembrandt, is the Christ Raising the Daughter of Jairus in the Staatliche Museen, Berlin. A good example of genre in the manner of Ter Borch is The Music Lesson of 1655, in the Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen. The National Gallery in London has a fine group portrait of Four Officers of the Amsterdam Coopers' and Wine-Rackers' Guild dated 1657.
