Biography   Godfried van Schalcken


Godfried Schalcken or Gottfried Schalken (1643 - November 16, 1706), was a Dutch genre and portrait painter. He was noted for his mastery in reproducing the effect of candlelight, and painted in the exquisite and highly polished manner of the Leiden fijnschilders.
