Pieter Anthonisz. van Groenewegen (1590/1600–1658)[1] was a Dutch Golden Age landscape painter.

Groenewegen, who was born in Delft, primarily painted landscapes. He traveled to Italy and between ca. 1615-1623 he lived on Via Bocca de Leone in Rome, where he became a member of the Bentvueghels with the nickname "Leeuw"(Lion).[1] He returned to Delft where he became a member of the Guild of Saint Luke in 1626, but spent the last few years of his life in The Hague, where he joined the Confrerie Pictura in 1657.[1][2] He died there in the following year. Many of his works now reside at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.[3]
