Hollstein n.ri 53/54/55.
He was born in Haarlem, son of the still life painter Pieter Claesz, who introduced him to the art world and taught him the first pictorial rudiments. The surname Berchem derived from the birthplace of his father. He furthered his knowledge under the guidance of Jan van Goyen, Jan Wils and Claes Cornelisz Moeyaert.
According to many sources, Berchem travelled to Italy in a period before 1642, together with the Dutch painter Hendrick Mommers and Jan Baptist Weenix, who was his cousin and of the same age.
On 2 October 1646 he married Jan Wils' daughter, Catrijne Claesdr.
De Groot. Around 1650 he moved to Westphalia together with Jacob van Ruisdael, and, after a second Italian stay (1653-1656), he returned to his homeland, to Amsterdam, where he worked for Jan de Visscher.
In the middle period of his career his vast production was mostly focused on port landscapes, hunts, ruins in landscapes, battles and obviously pastoral landscapes.
In the mature period, in addition to leaning towards more showy colours, he became closer to Adriaen van de Velde.
His artistic production was remarkable: sixty etchings and numerous important sanguine drawings, in addition to the famous paintings.
