One of the most well-known Dutch Golden Age artists is Gerbrand van den Eeckhout. 

Gerbrand van den Eeckhout was a friend and student of Rembrandt. His style has similarities to Rembrandt's, especially in his broad, generalized execution. He also received inspiration from Pieter Lastman, and made many small biblical-history paintings. His portraits were loosely painted in warm red and brown tints. In his lifetime, he produced some of the finest works of the Dutch Golden Age.

After completing his studies at the Academy of Arts, Gerbrand van den Eeckhout worked with Rembrandt as an assistant. He painted a variety of genre scenes including biblical scenes, portraits, figure studies, and a few landscapes. In 1643, Gerbrand married Cornelia Dedel, the daughter of a founder of the Delft chamber of the Dutch East India Company. The artist remained close to his mentor, and worked under his teacher's supervision.
