Dirck van Baburen

 

Dirck van Baburen (c. 1595- 1624) was a Dutch painter and one of the Utrecht Caravaggisti. The Utrecht works made between 1621 as 1624, the final years of Baburen's career, merged the visual characteristics learnt from Caravaggio and Manfredi into genre, mythological and history painting. He was among the first artists to popularize genre subjects such as musicians and cardplayers.
