1605 ca1671, May 16
a Dutch Golden Age painter who specialized in architectural painting. Van Delen's work consists almost entirely of architectural paintings of imaginary palaces and church interiors. His earliest paintings of palace scenes were influenced significantly by the work of Hans Vredeman de Vries and his son Paul Vredeman de Vries. He also painted church interiors, in which he initially showed an influence of the paintings by Hendrick Aerts after the architecture prints of Jan van Londerseel. His church interiors are in style also close to those of Bartholomeus van Bassen. After 1630 van Delen’s style became more exuberant and palace exteriors became his favourite subject.
