A new exhibition at the Rembrandthuis in Amsterdam will examine two of Rembrandt's most noted pupils, Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck. Says the museum:

From October 13th, The Rembrandt House Museum and the Amsterdam Museum will be presenting the first ever exhibition devoted to the painters Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck. The exhibition Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck: Rembrandt’s Master Pupils will be on view until February 18th 2018 in both museums.

Many paintings are coming together from all over the world, from museums and private collections, for this double exhibition in Amsterdam. Some of them will be back in the Dutch capital for the first time since the seventeenth century.

The exhibition explores the mastery of Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck in the seventeenth century at two locations that complement one another: training at the ‘first academy of art’ versus independence in the art market.

In the Rembrandt House, the place where the man who taught Ferdinand Bol (1616-1680) and Govert Flinck (1615-1660) lived and worked for almost twenty years, the emphasis is on their time with the master. Works of art transport visitors back in time to the painters’ early years and their training with Rembrandt, one soon after the other.
