Johannes Lingelbach

Lingelbach, Johannes (yōhäˈnəs lĭngˈəlbäkhˌ) [key], 1622–74, Dutch genre and landscape painter, b. Frankfurt am Main. He first went to Amsterdam in 1637 and settled there about 16 years later after some years of study in Rome. Influenced by van Laer, he painted Italian landscapes, seaports, military subjects, and genre, with cool colors, good draftsmanship, and careful execution. He often inserted little figures in landscapes for Wynants, Hobbema, and other masters. Battle Scene and Dance of the Peasants are in the Metropolitan Museum.
