Dutch, 17th century, male.

Baptised 27 January 1630, in Haarlem; died 23 November 1693, in Haarlem.

Painter, draughtsman. Religious subjects, genre scenes, figures, portraits, landscapes, church interiors, architectural views.

Job Berckheyde was the older brother of Gerrit Berckheyde. In 1644, at the age of 14, he joined the studio of Jacob Willemsz. de Wet. In the past he was erroneously believed to have been a pupil of Franz Hals. In March 1654 Berckheyde was a member of the Haarlem Guild of St Luke. He is thought to have accompanied his brother to Heidelberg, spent time in Cologne, Bonn and Mannheim and at the court in England. Berckheyde was a figure painter but also painted church interiors and various historical Dutch buildings, displaying a fine understanding of perspective and of the effect of light on his subjects. For many years he was less highly regarded than his younger brother, but is now rated more highly than him. This re-evaluation is no doubt connected with the fresh interest being shown in Saenredam's paintings of church interiors, since Berckheyde's work is very similar. It is difficult to describe exactly what gives Dutch painting its charm, as may be demonstrated by the ambiguity shown in the praise afforded to Vermeer, for example. The same is true here: the perspective of Berckheyde's church interiors is, of course, perfectly observed, the realism of the naves flooded with light through openings devoid of stained glass is remarkable, life at ground level is shown in minute detail, while the tiny figures dwarfed by the architecture reminds us of the insignificance of Man. Yet over and above these not inconsiderable qualities, what makes Berckheyde's work special - in common with Saenredam's - is the treatment of light, which is quite unlike that of other artists. Light captures the eye and unveils the subject; this new light becomes a new way of seeing the world....
