a Dutch Golden Age painter. Cornelis Kick is recorded as a painter from 1650 and specialized in flower still lifes, in the manner of his teacher Jan Davidsz de Heem. Kick married the daughter of the pawnbroker Spaaroog of the Bank van Lening, whose father had a garden outside the St Anthony's gate of Amsterdam. It was here that he painted flowers from nature with his student Jakob van Walskapel, until the expansion of the city in 1657-1663 claimed the land the garden was on and so forced him to move his garden further eastwards to the new polder called Diemermeer.[
