Richard Brakenburgh (Haarlem 1650 – 1702).
Teacher of Abraham Pardanus, Wigerus Vitringa and Gillis de Winter.
A native of Haarlem, Brakenburg was the student of Hendrick Mommers. The greatest influence on his work, however, was Jan Steen, and Brakenburg s most accomplished works have often been attributed to Steen.
Brakenburg, together with Cornelis Dusart, belonged to the second generation of students of Adriaen van Ostade. In his work the peasant genre became overlaid with petit-bourgeois mannerism and pictorial style became a cultivated convention.

Brakenburghs work is found in the collections of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Mauritshuis in Den Haag and Szépművészeti Múzeum in Boedapest.
