Aert de Gelder
Aert de Gelder (Oct 26, 1645, Dordrecht – Aug 27, 1727, Dordrecht) was one of Rembrandt’s last pupils while in Amsterdam, studying in his studio from 1661 to 1663. He was not only one of the most talented of Rembrandt’s pupils, but also one of his most devoted followers, for he was the only Dutch artist to paint in the tradition of Rembrandt's late style into the 18th century.
Unfortunately, this stubborn approach to painting did little to elevate him. He never sold a painting and was largely unknown outside his hometown of Dordrecht. Because of his relative affluence, he was able to hold onto his own style in stark contrast to his contemporaries.
