16271678
a Dutch painter of the Golden Age, who was also a poet and author on art theory. A sufficient number of Van Hoogstraten's works has been preserved to show that he strove to imitate different styles at different times. In a portrait dated 1645, currently in the Lichtenstein collection in Vienna, he imitates Rembrandt. He continued in this vein until as late as 1653 when he produced the wonderful figure of a bearded man looking out of a window. This, one of the more characteristic examples of his manner, is exhibited in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna. He was especially skillful in his Tromp-l'oeil still lifes, where the reality of the scene of apparently haphazard objects often has deeper meanings.
