Street-Musicians-at-the-Doorway-of-a-HouseJacob Ochtervelt – Dutch styleartist. He used primarily in Rotterdam, but the person is known to have been a pupil of Berchem in Haarlem, and of 1674 he remained in Amsterdam. Exceptseveral portraits plus some fast hunting-party and ‘merry-company’ moments, his artworks are just about all exquisite upper-class interiors, wherein he showed off a skill in drawing silks and satins to competing that|that often of Terborch.

In accordance with the RKD, he was dynami in Haarlem where he has been a student of Nicolaes Pietersz Berchem and later he moved back to Rotterdam (1655–1672 years) where he was a pupil of Ludolf de Jongh (who also taught Pieter de Hooch). After he (rampjaar) moved to Amsterdam.

His figures are very refined, but there is often a sexual element in his paintings—a couple eating oysters (believed to be an aphrodisiac) was a favourite subject.
According to Abraham Jacob van der Aa’s later lifestory of him, his style was more in keeping with Gerard Terburg or Gabriel Metzu, and moreover to sharing Berchem’s studio with Hooch, he had been a pupil of Frans van Mieris the Elder.

Jacob OchterveltIn 17th-century Holland it was usual to drape tables with Turkish carpets, as here, on the right. The tapestry hanging on the back wall appears to show Hagar in the Wilderness. Probably painted in the early 1670s, this drawing belongs to a group of works by the painter from these years, in which the same costumes are worn and the same basin and ewer appear.
Ochtervelt is said to have been a pupil of Nicolaes Berchem (1620 – 1683 years) even as Pieter de Hooch (1629 – 1684 years).
