16351686 ca
a painter and draughtsman, mainly known for his Italianizing landscapes, with equestrian and arcadian scenes. He worked in Antwerp, Haarlem and Amsterdam. He is regarded as one of the best followers of the Dutch painter Nicolaes Berchem. Soolmaker had a relatively short career and aside of the Escorial painting (if not a copy after someone else’s work), no work produced outside of the Low Countries is recorded. His works imitate Berchem's style and he is sometimes regarded as one of the best imitators of Berchem. It has in fact happened in the past that art dealers have tried to pass of his work as that of Berchem sometimes by adding fake Berchem signatures such as in the Travellers resting by a fountain (sold by Jean Moust Old Master Paintings).
