Biography from Kunsthaus Lempertz:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

We know very little about the painter Catharina Ykens, except that she was a niece of the Flemish still life painter Frans Ykens (1601 - 1693) and a nephew and pupil of the famous Ossias Beert (1580 - 1623). The possibly innate talent of her family and the unusual chance it provided her to train as an artist despite her gender were benefits which Catharina Ykens used to her best advantage. However, her surviving oeuvre is relatively small, which may be due to the fact that she lived in a Beguine community. Alongside the motif of a medallion with garlands containing a religious motif, which was highly popular in Antwerp at the time, Ykens also painted sparingly composed bouquets in the manner of her uncle.
