(b Zwolle, Dec. 1617; d Deventer, 8 Dec. 1681). Dutch painter and draughtsman of interiors and small portraits. He was highly precocious, his earliest known drawing (in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam) being inscribed with the date 25 September 1625, when he was only seven. He studied with his father, Gerard Terborch the Elder (1584–1662), in his native Zwolle, and with Pieter de Molyn in Haarlem. Unlike most Dutch artists of his time, he travelled extensively.
