Gerrit Adriaensz. Berckheyde ( Haarlem 1638 - Haarlem 1698 )
Gerrit Berckheyde was born in 1638 in Haarlem. He was apprenticed as a painter to his elder brother Job (1630 – 1693), who in turn had been apprenticed to Jacob de Wet (c.1610 – c.1675). Despite their predilections for cityscapes, neither of the brothers had studied under a specialist in architecture.
