1650, Feb1693, May 8
a Dutch Golden Age painter and engraver. He is known for his portraits and genre pieces. He was a wunderkind, whose talent started with an accident. As a child playing with darts, he had the unfortunate accident of receiving a dart in his heel, which began to fester so that he needed to lie in bed for months to alleviate the infection. While in bed a man named Bronkhorst gave him some prints to copy, and thus he took up drawing, and spent the rest of his career learning drawing techniques on his own.
