Bartholomeus van der Helst (1613 – buried 16 December 1670) was a Dutch painter. Considered to be one of the leading portrait painters of the Dutch Golden Age, his elegant portraits gained him the patronage of Amsterdam’s elite as with ease as the Stadtholder’s circle. Besides portraits, van der Helst painted a few genre pictures as without difficulty as some biblical scenes and mythological subjects.
