(b. 1601, Delft, d. 1673, Amsterdam)
Dutch portrait and genre painter, active mainly in his native Delft. He was a pupil of Miereveld and Dirk Hals and his paintings resemble those of his masters - his portraits rather wooden, his 'merry company' groups of soldiers, cavaliers,and their ladies livelier and pleasantly coloured. His younger brother Palamedes I Palamedesz. and his nephew Palamedes II Palamedesz. (1633-1705) were both painters.
