Pieter Molyn (aka Pieter de Molijn)

Dutch painter and etcher

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Molyn was Dutch, but of English birth and Flemish descent. His father, Pieter de Molijn, came from Ghent and his mother, Lynken van den Bossche, from Brussels. Molyn made his home in Haarlem. The earliest evidence of Molyn's presence in the Netherlands is his entry at the age of 21 into the Guild of St Luke in Haarlem in 1616, although no dated works by him before 1625 are known.
