Reinier Vinkeles (1741, Amsterdam – 1816, Amsterdam), was an 18th-century painter and engraver from the Northern Netherlands, who was the later teacher of several talented artists. He studied for some ten years with Jan Punt and joined the Amsterdam Stadstekenacademie (City Drawing School) in 1762.[1] In 1765 he travelled to Brabant with Jurriaan Andriessen and Izaäk Schmidt.[1] In 1770 he left for Paris, where he studied for a year with Jacques-Philippe Le Bas and also met the Dutch artists Hermanus Numan and Izaak Jansz de Wit (1744-1809). When he returned to Amsterdam he worked making prints for book illustrations, including portraits, topographical and architectural prints, copies after Dutch masters, and theatre sets. He became a director of the Stadstekenacademie]and was a member of the artist’s club Pax Artium Nutrix. He became the teacher of Jacob Ernst Marcus, Jacobus Millies, his son Abraham Vinkeles, his brother Harmanus Vinkeles (1745-1804), his son Johannes Vinkeles, and Daniël Vrijdag.
