Painting School: Caravaggisti, Utrecht School
Genre: Genre scenes , Portrait , Religious , Mythology
Country: Netherlands
Century: XVII

The most important painter of the Utrecht school, deeply influenced by Caravaggio’s paintings (he spent 10 years in Italy). On his return to the Netherlands, together with Honthorst, he became one of the leaders of Caravaggism in the Netherlands. His early work has harsh, directional lighting. Later paintings become softer, at times quieter. The rediscovery of his sensitive and poetic paintings has been part of the general reappraisal of Caravaggesque art in the 20th century.

Hendrick Terbrugghen’s major works are Flute Players, 1621 (Kassel, Germany: Staatliche Kunstsammlungen); St. Sebastian Tended by Irene and her Maid, 1625 (Oberlin, Ohio: Allen Memorial Art Museum); The Annunciation, 1629 (Amsterdam: Stedelijk Museum).
