Adam Pijnacker, Boatmen Moored on the Shore of an Italian Lake

Antonie PALAMEDESZ
Delft 1601 - Amsterdam 1673

Dutch portrait and genre painter, active mainly in his native Delft. He was a pupil of Miereveld and Dirk Hals and his paintings resemble those of his masters - his portraits rather wooden, his 'merry company' groups of soldiers, cavaliers, and their ladies livelier and pleasantly colored. His younger brother Palamedes I Palamedesz. (1607-1638) and his nephew Palamedes II Palamedesz. (1633-1705) were both painters.
