Pieter Jansz Saenredam (Jun 9, 1597, Assendelft — buried May 31, 1665, Haarlem) was a Dutch painter. Saenredam was the son of the print maker and draughtsman Jan Pietersz Saenredam (1565—1607), who was born in Zaandam or, in those days, Saenredam. A contemporary of Rembrandt, he is noted chiefly for his surprisingly modern paintings of churches. Saenredam achieved this modern look by meticulously measuring and making sketches of the churches he wanted to paint. He would make these sketches in pencil, pen, and chalk, then and add in water colors to help give the sketch texture and color. The sketches are very architectural in detail, they convey the interior atmosphere through the clever use of light and graduated shadows. Saenredam often deliberately left people out of his work, thus also focusing more attention on buildings and their architectural forms. Only after having made precise measurements, and precise sketches and drawings of the churches, he would take them to his studio where he started to create his paintings.
