Harmen van Steenwijck was a Dutch Golden Age painter of mostly still lives. He painted still lives with fruit, fish, kitchen symbols, hunting paraphernalia and a couple of Vanitas still lives. He was the brother of Pieter van Steenwijck, a still life painter too. The brothers were taught by their uncle David Bailly. Harmen became member of the Guild of Saint Luke in Delft in 1636. He travelled with a Merchantman to Indonesia in 1654 and returned after a year. His presence in Delft is documented in 1656 for the last time.
