The artist Job Berckheyde, whose name is derived from the name of his younger brother, is one of the most popular 17th-century Dutch artists. Born on 27 January 1630, he died on or before 23 November 1693. He was active in Amsterdam, Haarlem, and The Hague, where he studied with his brother. 

Known as a "master of the Dutch landscape," His paintings are renowned for their detailed depictions of architecture. These paintings are often very realistic and contain beautiful colors. Despite being a prolific painter, Job Berckheyde was not well known outside the Netherlands. His work is widely collected, and is among the finest in the world.

His later works are simpler, more realistic, and similar to the works of his contemporaries from Haarlem.
