HEUSSEN, Claes van
(b. 1599, Haarlem, d. after 1631, Haarlem)


Dutch painter, a specialist of still-lifes. He was active in Haarlem and was listed in the guild there. Only a handful of his works have been identified. He was inspired by the huge, abundant displays of fruits and vegetables favoured by Flemish artists and by their followers in the Northern Netherlands.

He died young some time after 1633; his wife was listed in March 1634 as a widow.
