Hendrick ter Brugghen - De roeping van Mattheus - 1621.jpg

Hendrick ter Brugghen    ———

Hendrick ter Brugghen painted life-sized portraits of drinkers and musicians, as well as religious scenes. One of his best-known works, ‘The Calling of Saint Matthew’, was inspired in part by the same-titled work created by Caravaggio in 1600 for the walls of the Contarelli chapel in Rome. Brugghen’s painting is part of Centraal Museum’s collection.
