Biography

David de Coninck or David de Koninck (* 1636 in Antwerp; † 1687 probably in Brussels) was a Flemish animal and still life painter.

De Koninck was a pupil of Pieter Boel in Antwerp and in 1663 became a master of the Luke Guild there. He painted living and dead animals, fruits, flowers and still lifes in the style of Jan Fyt. He travelled through Germany and France and went to Rome in 1670, from where he returned to Antwerp in 1687. In 1699 he moved to Brussels. His paintings are rare. The Imperial Gallery in Vienna owns a still life with dead ducks.
