Nicolaes van Lijnhoven (c. 1610–bef. 1702)

Born at Haarlem, Van Lijnhoven was a printmaker and draughtsman active in Haarlem, where he lived, and also in Paris. Little is known about this artist, and only a small number of engravings by him exist. These are executed in a sharp and spirited manner, with some being humorous, and with a degree of vulgarity. He worked on landscapes and equestrian subjects, and engravings after pictures by other artists, including a series of farmers and peasants.
