(b ?Haarlem, c.1632; bur. Amsterdam, 23 Jan. 1684). Dutch landscape painter, active first in Haarlem, then from about 1660 in Amsterdam, where he also ran an inn. He specialized in landscapes with dunes and sandy roads, inspired by the countryside around Haarlem—unpretentious, naturalistic views that were favourites with collectors in the 18th century. The figures in his paintings were evidently always painted by other artists, including Wouwerman.
