Ferdinand Bol


            Ferdinand Bol was born in Dordrecht in 1616. He studied in Rembrandt’s studio around 1635; the master strongly influenced the development of the young artist. Bol stayed and worked in Amsterdam till the end of his life in 1680; he painted portraits, historical compositions and sometimes still-lifes. In his early works the powerful authority of Rembrandt is seen, but already in 1650s he changed his palette to a lighter one.
