Biographical information
Active in
  • Haarlem 1616 - 1661
    He became a master and member of the Saint Luke Guild in 1616; he held various positions there in the 1620s and 1630s ('vinder', deken' etc.) (Miedema 1980).
  • Rome 1618 - 1618-06-06
    Beck 1998 wrongly doubts De Molijn's presence in Rome, which is evidenced by his contribution to the album amicorum Wybrand de Geest: 'In Rome den 6 junij 1618/Pieter du Molyn' (De Geest 1614). Indeed there are no works known that he might have made in Italy, although he created works with Italian subjects later in his career.
