Hendrik Verschuring (Gorinchem 1627 - Dordrecht 1690)

Verschuring was a pupil of Jan Both (c.1615-1652) in Utrecht before travelling to Italy in c.1650. He remained in Rome for a considerable length of time, only returning to Holland in 1662. In his maturity, he achieved considerable renown for his paintings of Italianate equestrian and battle scenes in a style similar to that of Philips Wouwerman (1619-1668).
