Pieter van Bronckhorst
Pieter Anthonisz van Bronckhorst or Bronkhorst (1588–1661), was a Dutch Golden Age painter.
According to Houbraken he was born at Delft in 1588. He excelled in painting the interiors of churches and temples, which he ornamented with small figures representing historical subjects. In the town-house at Delft he painted two large pictures — one of 'The Interior of the Temple, with Solomon pronouncing his Judgment,' and the other, 'Christ driving the Money-changers out of the Temple.' He was the father of the painter Claes Bronckhorst and died in 1661.
