Jacob Gerritszoon Cuyp (also Spelled Cuijp) (December 1594 – 1652) was a portrait and landscape painter, best known for his portraits. He was born and died in Dordrecht, and was the son of the stained glass designer Gerrit Gerritsz Cuyp, who moved to Dordrecht from Venlo. He was the half-brother of Benjamin Gerritsz Cuyp and the father of the much more famous Aelbert Cuyp.
He first painted still lifes, interiors with figures, and animals but later specialized in the pastoral landscapes for which he is famous.
