Frans Hals, Fluitspelende jongen

Frans Hals, Fluitspelende jongen

Frans Hals the Elder ( c.?1582 – 26 August 1666) was a Dutch Golden Age painter, normally of portraits, who lived and worked in Haarlem. He is notable for his loose painterly brushwork, and he helped introduce this lively style of painting into Dutch art. Hals played an important role in the evolution of 17th-century group portraiture.
Hals was a master of a technique that utilized something previously seen as a flaw in painting, the visible brushstroke. The soft curling lines of Hals’ brush are always clear upon the surface: “materially just lying there, flat, while conjuring substance and space in the eye.”
