Hendrick Andriessen (1607–1655) was a Flemish Baroque still-life painter.

Biography[edit]

According to Cornelis de Bie, he was born in Antwerp and died in Zeeland. He was known as Mancken Heyn, or crippled Hein, though his still-life paintings were highly regarded and weren't at all crippled.[1] He joined the Guild of St. Luke in Antwerp in 1637.[2] He is known mainly as a still-life painter.

Many paintings formerly attributed to Pieter van der Willigen have since been reassigned to Andriessen.
