and studio of Claes Jacobsz. van der Heck
After 1620, there seems to be a shift in the character of the paintings by Van der Heck. Klinkert/Taatgen 2015 argues that Van der Heck must have started employing assistants and/or pupils from that date onwards, who must have collaborated on many of the paintings signed C. Heck (Klinkert/Taatgen 2015, p. 30).
