Born Jan. 25, 1585, in Amsterdam; buried May 15, 1634, in Kampen. Dutch painter.
Avercamp created genre landscapes characteristic of the early phase of of 17th-century Dutch realism; with his light, silvery palette he painted small winter scenes with little skating figures, delicately reproducing the panoramas of Dutch cities, the frosty moist air, and the feeling of depth and space. His Skating hangs in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Art, Moscow.
