Samuel Van Hoogstraten Attributed
(Dordrecht, Netherlands, 1627 - 1678, Dordrecht, Netherlands)
Samuel Dirksz can Hoogstraten was a painter, poetry, author and art theorist during Dutch’s Golden Age. He trained with his father from an early age, and stayed in Dordrecht until 1640. After the passing of his father, he moved to Amsterdam, where he entered the workshop of Rembrandt. He started out on his own after years of training and became a master painter of portraits.
He traveled extensively throughout his career, visiting Vienna, Rome, and London, among others. He was married in 1656. Many of his works have been well preserved, and some of which were even done to imitate Rembrandt. He used his skill to create many “peepshows” or “perspective boxes”, essentially three dimensional houses or scenes where you could see from one end to the other. One of his perspective boxes in on display at the National Gallery in London, showing a typical Dutch house for his time.
He produced many etchings as well as paintings in his time. Some of his plates have been preserved, including a self-portrait engraving. His pupils included his younger brother Jan van Hoogstraten, Aert de Gelder, Corenlis van der Meulen and Godfried Schalcken.
