Esaias van de Velde (May 17, 1587 (baptized) – November 18, 1630 (buried) ) was a Dutch landscape painter.  He was born in Amsterdam, where his Flemish father Hans had fled as a Protestant in 1585.  He probably studied under his father and Gillis van Coninxloo, a landscape painter from Antwerp and a follower of Pieter Brueghel the Elder.

Van de Velde worked in Haarlem from 1610-1618, where he joined the Haarlem Guild of St. Luke in 1612 along with Hercules Segers.  This event in many ways established realistic* landscape paintings as a separate genre in that part of the Netherlands.  Van de Velde had been influenced by the German painter Adam Elsheimer to develop his paintings in a more naturalistic direction than his tutor, and to adopt a low viewpoint and a triangular composition.

In addition to landscapes, Esaias van de Velde also painted genre and military paintings.

He died in The Hague in 1630, where he had been Court Painter to the Prince Maurits and Frederick Henry.  According to the RKD, his pupils were Pieter van Laer, Jan Martzen de Jonge, Pieter de Molyn, Pieter de Neyn, Anthony van de Velde (II), and Jan van Goyen.

 He influenced Palamedes Palamedesz, Nicolaes de Quade van Ravesteyn, Adriaen Adriaensz Ghibons, Jacob Wynants, Zacharias Blijhooft, Abraham Vinck, Willem Viruly, and Jan Asselyn.

A cousin of Jan van de Velde, Esaias was no relation to the family of Willem van de Velde.  He died and was buried at The Hague.
