Pieter van Anraedt
Pieter van Anraedt (Utrecht, ca. 1635 – Deventer, 13 April 1678) was a Dutch Golden Age painter of history scenes. He was an artist of great merit, nonwithstanding which very few of the circumstances of his life are known.
According to the RKD he was born in Utrecht (city), but trained in Deventer, where he was influenced by Gerard ter Borch. Arnold Houbraken mentions that this painter was very friendly with Jan van der Veen, a poet. He married his daughter and moved to Amsterdam in the rampjaar 1672, where he won a commission to paint the regents of the huiszitten house on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal, where he lived. This piece was highly admired and was known to Houbraken in 1718. Soon after painting this portrait, Anraedt returned to Deventer in 1675, where he later died.
