Dutch painter, draughtsman*, calligrapher* and printmaker* of German origin, Ludolf Backhuysen I was the son of Gerhard Backhusz (Bakhuizen) of Emden, and he trained as a clerk in his native town.  Shortly before 1650 he joined the Bartolotti trading house in Amsterdam, where his fine handwriting attracted attention. He practiced calligraphy* throughout his life, and during his early years in Amsterdam he also displayed his skilled use of the pen in drawings, mainly marine scenes, done in b (showing 500 of 6859 characters).
