Frederick de Moucheron

1633 - 1686

De Moucheron was born in Emden and was probably taught by Jan Asselijn in Amsterdam. He was active in Paris and Lyon in the 1650s. By 1659 he had settled in Amsterdam, where he died. He painted mostly landscapes; although he never went to Italy, many of his paintings depict the golden light and classical ruins typical of Italianate views.
