David Vinckboons (1576-1632) | Pittore del Secolo d'oro Olandese

David Vinckboons o Vingboons o Vinckeboons o Vingbooms è stato un pittore, incisore e disegnatore Olandese del Secolo d'oro.
Appartenne ad una famiglia di artisti di origine fiamminga. Il padre Philip Vinckeboons (m.1601) era un pittore di acquerelli su tela, arte praticata principalmente nella zona di Mechelen, e fu l'unico insegnante di David.
La famiglia si trasferì ad Anversa intorno al 1585. Probabilmente a causa delle guerre di religione nei Paesi Bassi meridionali, si spostò a Middelburg nel 1586 circa, e infine ad Amsterdam dove il padre Philip divenne un cittadino nel 1591.
Il 2 ottobre 1602 David sposò a Leeuwarden Agnieta van Loon, la figlia di un notaio, da cui ebbe dieci figli: sei maschi e quattro femmine. In seguito acquistò una casa ad Amsterdam in Sint-Antoniesbreestraat, come molti altri artisti e pittori.
