Adriaen van Diest

1655-1704 Holland/England Maritime/Landscapes

 

Brief Biography-Adriaen van Diest was from The Hague. His father, Jeronymus, who was a maritime artist, tutored him. He spent most of his life in England, where he painted landscapes along the western coastline, under the employ of John Granville, 1st Earl of Bath. His landscape works bore some inspiration from the paintings of Italian and Northern masters that he had observed, Jan van Goyen being the most prominent influence. Often for a means of living, he hurriedly painted pictures of inferior quality than his talents permitted. His brother-in-law Adriaen Coloni, a lesser artist who painted in the style of Salvator Rosa, inserted most of the staffage in his paintings.
