Van Eeckhout, Gregory C.
e Artist : painter
Jacob's Dream of the Heavenly Ladder (detail).
b 128 x 104 cm.
c Oil on canvas.
Design Date: 1669 (signed & dated)
Dutch biblical, genre, and portrait painter, a gifted and favourite pupil of Rembrandt (1635-40), to whom he remained a close friend. His usual style is based so closely on that of his master that many of his pictures have passed as works of Rembrandt himself. Eeckhout was one of the most successful of this school in adopting the broader and bolder technique of Rembrandt's mature style, though he seldom approached the master in humanity or depth of feeling.In surprising contrast to his normal Rembrandtesque style are a number of highly finished genre subjects--guardroom scenes, backgammon players, and so on.
Style: Dutch Baroque.
