Self Portrait with Beret
(b Cleve, Germany, 25 Jan. 1615; d Amsterdam, 2 Feb. 1660). Dutch painter, active mainly in Amsterdam. He studied with Rembrandt from about 1633 to 1636, and his early work, including portraits, religious subjects, and landscapes, was overwhelmingly influenced by his master (several of his paintings have indeed at some time been assigned to Rembrandt). From the mid-1640s, however, Flinck adopted the elegant style of van der Helst, with which he had great success.
