Though born in Antwerp, Adriaen van Nieulandt the Younger spent almost all of his artistic career in Amsterdam, where his Calvinist family moved when he was very young. His brother, Willem van Nieulandt the Younger (1584-1635), was a significant painter of Italianate landscapes, as was his uncle, Willem van Nieulandt the Elder (1560-1626). The attribution of this atmospheric rocky landscape was first suggested by Peter Schatborn. A similarly executed landscape by Adriaen van Nieulandt, signed and dated 1649, is in the Leiden University Printroom, and another is in the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum, Rotterdam.1For another landscape by Adriaen van Nieulandt the Younger, see lot 25.
