HENDRICK VAN STREECK

1659 – Amsterdam – 1720

 

 

Hendrick van Streeck painted still lifes, church interiors and landscapes. He was born in Amsterdam in 1659, one of nine children of the still life painter Juriaen van Streeck (1632-1687) and his wife Grietje Claes. He trained with his father in the still life genre and with the sculptor Willem van der Hoeven from 1672 to 1677. In 1683 Hendrick married Maria van Hockom. Juriaen van Streeck kept an inn in Kerkstraat towards the end of his life; his son lived in Kerkstraat for most of his career.

 

After Juriaen’s death in 1687, Hendrick became a student of Emanuel de Witte (1617-1692), who specialised in painting church interiors. Hendrick van Streeck’s church interiors are in the style of de Witte’s late work, sometimes even following de Witte’s compositions. In 1696 Hendrick was involved in the decoration of the town hall in Alkmaar. He died in 1720 and was buried in the Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam.

 

The work of Hendrick van Streeck is represented in the Amsterdam Museum; the Hermitage, St Petersburg; Cincinnati Art Museum; the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore and the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Brussels.
