Gerrit or Gerard van Honthorst was one of the leading members of the Utrecht School during the Golden Age. Honthorst was first instructed in the basics of painting by his father. The first proper training took place in the studio of Abraham Bloemaert , who also taught Hendrik Terbrugghen. After completing his training, Honthorst, like many of his colleagues at that time, went to Italy, where they studied modern and ancient Italian art. In Rome, his main sponsors were the banker and art collector Vincenzo Giustiniani and Cardinal Borghese. Giustiniani, in whose palace Honthorst lived, owned a considerable collection of contemporary Italian art. These included works by Caravaggio , Bartolomeo Manfredi and Carracci . Caravaggio's style particularly influenced Honthorst's later works. Honthorst had a special talent to depict scenes in artificial light and mastered the associated light-shadow effects in perfection. Often the whole evening scene was lit by a single candle, as in "Adoration of the Child". This earned him the nickname Gherardo della Notte (Gherardo of the Night) in Italy.

Around 1620 Honthorst returned to Utrecht. Soon he had a good reputation, which even went beyond the country's borders. He joined the Luke Guild in 1622 and was appointed its president the following year. In the following years he received numerous orders from various noble houses. He painted various portraits for Charles I of England, as well as the Bohemian royal couple living in exile in the Netherlands and is said to have also given her four children painting lessons. Honthorst was later appointed Court Painter of the Orange Royal House. This earned him so many jobs that he had to open a second studio in The Hague. He had many students and assistants who helped to reproduce his portraits. One of his students, Joachim von Sandrat, who also accompanied him to work in England, later claimed that Honthorst always had 24 students at the same time, each paying 100 guilders a year for their lessons. But Honthorst was not only a prolific and successful portrait painter who earned a lot. He played a major role in the development of Dutch painting. Together with Terbrugghen he was a role model and leading figure of Utrecht Caravaggists. Rembrandt is said to have come nearer to Caravaggio for the most part by studying Honthorst's works.

Honthorst was married to his cousin. His younger brother Willem van Honthorst was also a successful portrait and history painter. Since this was taught by both Gerrit and his teacher Bloemaert, style and motives of the two brothers are similar. Initially, many of Willem's works were falsely attributed to the older Gerrit, partly due to the similar style but also the similar signatures of the two. The brothers are said to have worked together for several years in Gerrit's studio. Honthorst's special appreciation for Peter Paul Rubens becomes clear when he invites him to dinner at his estate in Utrecht. On this occasion, he made a portrait of Rubens, and presented him as the "righteous man" described by Diogenes dar. His retirement, Honthorst spent from 1652 back in his hometown of Utrecht. © Meisterdrucke
