Biography Willem de Poorter
Although his father was Flemish, de Poorter was born in Haarlem, where he is recorded on numerous occasions between 1630 and 1648.
Although there is no documentary evidence to conclude that he was a pupil of Rembrandt, his style suggests that he apprenticed with the master in Leiden during the late 1620s or early 1630s. Among his own pupils are Pieter Castelyn and Pieter Abrams Poorter. Like Rembrandt, de Poorter's work reveals the influence of Rembrandt's teacher, Pieter Lastman, and shows a tendency toward the use of exquisite gold and silver objects in the still life details. Furthermore, his dramatic use of chiaroscuro, particularly in his works of the 1630s, was deeply influenced by Rembrandt.
