Popular and prolific, David Vinckboons trained with his painter father, who brought the family to Holland to escape religious persecution in
In his last years, he made close-up views of a single couple in a landscape and pure landscapes of woods and heroic trees. His paintings of fashionably attired groups entertaining themselves by eating, drinking, and flirting in country-house landscapes directly influenced later artists. Many engravers made Vinckboons's drawings into prints--more than those of any of his Dutch contemporaries--prolonging his influence into the next generation.
