This beautifully-illustrated book documents the latest insights about Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck, in a series of longer essays and short pieces on a range of topics. These provide a fascinating insight into their lives and work, from their time as pupils of Rembrandt, to their major successes as independent masters who excelled in major historic works and elegant portraits. The book not only explores their extraordinary artistic talent, but also looks at the family connections and social networks that were instrumental in their success. Bol and Flinck received commissions from the great and the good, both from private individuals and princes and city institutions, including the city militia and city hall. Around fifteen paintings by Bol and Flinck have been specially restored for the exhibition. All in all, the book will be a valuable addition to any art lover’s collection.
