Hendrick Danckerts, Royal Gardener John Rose presenting a pineappel to King Charles II, 1675

Hendrick Danckerts (c.1625 - 1680) was a Dutch Golden Age landscape painter and engraver.[1]


Danckerts was born in The Hague, where he learned his trade and remained until 1653.[2] He visited England for the first time in 1650.[2] In 1653 he went to Italy, where he stayed for five years.[2] He then moved to England where he entered the service of Charles II and the Duke of York (later James II & VII.) He painted Italianate landscapes, especially views of harbors and royal residences.[2] He also produced portraits and devotional pictures and made engravings after the Italian old masters in the Royal Collection. He left England in 1679[2] due to the public hostility towards Roman Catholics after the Popish Plot controversy. He died soon after in Amsterdam.[2]

He was also known as the "Master with the two Anchors" and was the younger brother of the painter Johan Danckerts.[2] Danckerts has twenty painting in public ownership in the United Kingdom.[3]
