Hendrik Gerritsz Pot
Dutch , ca. 1585–1657
Follow

Hendrick Gerritsz Pot belongs to a generation of Dutch artists in the first half of the 17th century whose works often bordered on monochrome. Pot was a pupil of Karel van Mander, the mentor of Frans Hals (who would also become a significant influence in Pot’s later works). He was known for his single and group portraits, depictions of guardrooms, landscapes, and festive scenes. He was instrumental in forming the convention in diptych portraiture in which members of a couple were depicted on opposing canvases. His better known works include his portraits for the royal family of Charles I of Britain, and group portraits of officers and guards.
