Jacob Adriaensz Backer (1609 –27 August 1651) was a Dutch Golden Age painter. He produced about 140 paintings in twenty years. In his style he was influenced by Wybrand de Geest, Rubens and Abraham Bloemaert. Also his drawings (male and female nudes) are highly interesting and skilful. He never painted a town or landscape.
