Adriaen Hendriksz Verboom (1627 – 1673), was a Dutch Golden Age landscape painter.

Biography[edit]

He was born in Rotterdam, and was the older brother and teacher of Willem Hendricksz Verboom.[1] He worked in Haarlem from 1650 and in Amsterdam from 1661 and is known for Italianate landscapes in the manner of Jacob van Ruisdael.[1] He seems to have spent a long period in Amsterdam, where his works appeared in inventories and after his wife died in 1667 he returned to Rotterdam, where he later died.[1]

He was documented as a good draughtsman who painted tiles and made etchings, as well as paintings. The Rijksmuseum has several of his drawings and etchings. The Teylers Museum has a book of engravings by Johannes Groensveld after Verboom's drawings.
