Jan Jansz. Treck

1605/6 - 1652

Treck was a still-life painter who was born and worked in Amsterdam. His carefully composed, restrained still lifes are closely related to those of Jan Jansz den Uyl the Elder (1595/6 - 1640) who was Treck's brother-in-law and may also have been his teacher. Like den Uyl's, Treck's still lifes are a development of the style of the pioneering Haarlem still-life painters, Pieter Claesz. and Willem Heda.
