Willem van Drielenburgh

1632 - after 1677

Born in Utrecht, van Drielenburgh was probably a pupil of Abraham Bloemaert. He was subsequently strongly influenced by Jan Both. Recorded in Utrecht until 1666, he was first noted as being present in Dordrecht in 1668. The last sure reference to him in Dordrecht is of 1677. Arnold Houbraken and Willem Bens were amongst his pupils in the city.

Van Drielenburgh painted a number of Italianate landscapes, but most of his known works are landscapes with topographically accurate townscape views in the background.
