Portrait of a Man, Half-Length, Wearing a Plumed Turban and Gold Embroidered Red Cloak with a White Shawl
Daniël de Koninck was a Dutch painter and draughtsman.
The de Konincks were a Dutch family of painters, draughtsmen and printmakers spanning several generations, although the relationships between the individual family members are unclear. Little is known about Daniël’s life except that he studied under his uncle, Jacob de Koninck (c.1612-1690), from 3 September 1682. A record states that on 3 August 1690, Daniël paid off his apprenticeship fee ‘to my Uncle Jacob de Koninck, Painter in Copenhagen’. Soon afterwards, he moved to Oxford and by 1720 he was living in London, where it seems he built up a considerable reputation as a portrait painter.
