About the Artist

Frederick Valckenborch, Dutch, (1566-1623). Frederick Valckenborch (also Valkenborch or Valkenborgh) was a painter and draughtsman and son of Marten van Valckenborch I (1534 – 1612). Both were members of a family of Netherlandish landscape and genre painters, the most important members of which were Lucas (c. 1535-1597) and his younger brother Marten.

Of the 14 known painters in the family, only Marten, his brother Lucas and Marten’s sons Frederik and Gillis (Egidius) (1570-1622) have so far been identified as significant from surviving works.
