(b Assendelft, nr. Haarlem, 9 June 1597; bur. Haarlem, 31 May 1665). Dutch painter of architectural subjects, particularly church interiors, active mainly in Haarlem. He was the son of an engraver and map-maker, Jan Saenredam (c.1565–1607), and a friend of the architect Jacob van Campen, who made a drawing of Saenredam (1628, BM, London), which shows that he was dwarf-like and evidently hunchbacked.
