Museum Rembrandthuis in Amsterdam hosts an exhibition of paintings by Ferdinand Bol (1616-1680) and Govert Flinck (1615-1660), two of Rembrandt’s most talented pupils. The exhibition is divided over two museums: the Rembrandthuis Museum and Amsterdam Museum. The Rembrandthuis Museum was Rembrandt’s atelier. Here the master taught his pupils the ‘tricks of the trade’. On display are works of art that show the early works of Bol and Flinck and how they were trained to become masters themselves and how their talents developed.
The Amsterdam Museum exhibition shows how Bol and Flick developed into masters and became competitors of their former teacher. How these ambitious painters reached the zenith of the art market. Bol and Flinck were during their life each other’s competitors and even more successful than Rembrandt.
Seventeenth-century painters were commissioned by wealthy merchants to paint their portraits. They were also masters of scenes from the bible and antiquity. Many of the paintings on display come from other museums and private collections from all over the world, some of these come ‘back home’ for the first time.
