The Dutch Baroque painter Willem van de Velde the younger (1633-1707) is the most famous painter of art history, he was also called "The Lake painting Raphael".

First he moved with the marine painter Simon de Vlieger in the doctrine whose atmospheric seascapes for Willem were resistant to the model. His father Willem van de Velde the elder was marine artist, who was hired as a reporter to document naval battles as well as the ships of their own and those foreign fleets. His son used its templates like to paint this fictional compositions by special coloristic charm. In 1672, father and son settled over van de Velde to England at the Court of Charles II, where the two painters were given a series of exceptional privileges as an expression of appreciation of the King.

The works of Willem the Younger influence until today many artists who deal with the representation of seafaring. Admirable are particularly the paintings with calm seas - with enchanting acting Water reflection and breath-taking light.

His principal works are in the National Gallery in London, at the Bridgewater Gallery, private collections and in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.

Epochal term for the art of the 17th century. Baroque art style that emanated from Rome in 1600 permeated fine arts, literature and music practically all over Europe within a very short time and lasted until 1770 in the fine arts. The last phase is generally characterized by the rococo.

Characteristic features include: the pulsating movement of all forms, the abolition of boundaries between architecture, painting and sculpture, that resulted in typical for the era synthesis of the arts, and especially in specific handling of light, which became an important artistic component. The subordination of the part to the whole led to the emergence of a single and, at the same time, dynamic space, which comes into full effect in the magnificent buildings of its time.

The Baroque art, with its tendency towards greatness, magnificence and rushing abundance clearly reflects the desire for representation, which was a concern of secular and ecclesiastical, especially Catholic customers strengthened through Counter-Reformation of that time. In painting, characteristic features of the Baroque, are manifested in the altar and ceiling painting, history and portrait.

The area of the sculpture is typically represented by such artists as Anthony van Dyck, Peter Paul Rubens, Gian Lorenzo Bernini and others.
