Houbraken, Arnold

Dutch painter and art writer noted for his three-volume biographical study of Netherlandish painters, De groote Schouburgh der Nederlantsche Konstschilders en Schilderessen (1718-21). Houbraken was a competent if rather uninspired academic painter, but his De Groote Schouburgh is the single most important source of information about the great Dutch painters of the 17th century.
