VIANEN, Adam van
(b. ca. 1568, Utrecht, d. 1627, Utrecht)


Dutch silversmith. He was apprenticed to a family of silversmiths and shortly after 1590 was admitted to the guild. As well as being an artist, he also worked as a brewer. He remained in Utrecht throughout his life, in contrast to his well-travelled brother, Paulus. He was an exponent of the auricular style invented by his brother.
