Andries Vermeulen Biography


Dutch Baroque Painter

Andries Vermeulen was a Dutch genre painter of landscapes and marine subjects. He often included figures, horses and cattle in his landscapes and excelled in painting winter scenes with figures skating on the frozen canals of Holland. He also made many copies after the works of the seventeenth century Dutch landscapists Aelbert Cuyp and Meindert Hobbema.
He was born at Dordrecht in 1763 and studied under his father Cornelis Vermeulen the Younger, an ornamental painter and picture dealer. For much of his life he lived and worked in Amsterdam where he died in 1814.
The work of Vermeulen is represented in several museums including the National Gallery, London, the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam and the Dordrecht Museum, Dordrecht.
