Biography[edit]

According to the RKD he was a pupil of Pieter de Molijn and became a member of the Haarlem Guild of St. Luke in 1632.[1] He married in 1638 and is mentioned in archives as a merchant in 1675 and 1676.[1] He is known for landscapes in the manner of Jan van Goyen.[1]

He was listed as coming from Utrecht and being a pupil of Van Goyen, "whose works he imitated so closely that they passed for the originals", in Bryan's Dictionary of Painters and Engravers.
