Koninck, Philips
Panoramic Landscape with Mountains Panoramic Landscape with Mountains
1675 1675

Philips Koninck was born in Amsterdam, the son of a goldsmith. His brother Jacob and cousin Salomon were also painters. He likely first learned to paint from his brother, and although he is not known to have studied with Rembrandt, he absorbed the master’s influence, and joined his circle in Amsterdam. Though Koninck tried his hand at portraits, history paintings and genre subjects, his true achievement lies in his panoramic landscapes. His work demonstrates the influence of the landscapes of Hercules Segers and Rembrandt. Extensive Mountainous Landscape is characteristic of Koninck’s panoramas with its low horizon, elevated viewpoint, regular rhythms, and alternating passages of light and shade.
