Dirk Stoop (1610-1686
Dutch painter and etcher. Son of Willem Jansz. Stoop (fl.1633-44, d. 1646), a stained-glass artist with whom he probably trained. Dirck or possibly his brother Maerten Willemsz. (c. 1620-47) was an apprentice in the Utrecht Guild of St Luke in 1638. Dirck probably travelled to Italy in 1635-45, where he may have painted Rest during the Hunt (1643; Copenhagen, Nationalmuseum). Between 1647 and 1652 he was back in Utrecht.
