Adriaen Hanneman (c. 1603-1671) was a Dutch painter of the Golden Age, best known for his portraits. He was born in The Hague and was a pupil of the portrait painter Anthony van Ravesteyn. Hanneman worked mainly in The Hague, where he became a successful portrait painter, attracting commissions from the Dutch nobility and upper class. His portraits are notable for their detailed rendering of costume and jewellery, as well as his ability to capture the likeness and personality of his subjects. Hanneman's portraits often feature elegant poses and rich colours, reflecting the opulence of the Dutch Golden Age. In addition to his portraits of individuals, Hanneman also painted group portraits, including civic guards and family portraits. His works are in various museums and collections around the world, including the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the Mauritshuis in The Hague.
