Antwerp 1557 - Amsterdam -1616
Born in Antwerp in 1557, Anthony was the brother of the painter and art dealer Hans van de Velde. He appeared in Amsterdam in 1590 where he married and rose to the rank of burgher His trace can be found in numerous trade and property acts. Attentive to the developments in painting at the time, van de Velde integrated the technical and aesthetic advances of Paul Vredeman de Vries and specialised in painting architecture. As a Flemish painter who spent time in Holland, he is probably the uncle of the painter Esaias van de Velde (1590 – 1630) and the engraver Jan van de Velde (1593 – 1641). His body of work was established by the RKD (Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie) around a painting bearing the monogram A V.
