Gerrit Adriaensz Berckheyde (Haarlem, 1638 – Haarlem, 1698) was a gifted Dutch Golden Age painter and draughtsman from North-Holland. Before he permanently settled in Haarlem in 1660, he worked with his older brother Job Berckheyde in several German cities, including Cologne and Mannheim. Once back in Haarlem, he became a member of the Guild of Saint Luke.

Gerrit Berckheyde was an apprentice to his older brother Job Berckheyde and Frans Hals. He painted various themes, such as church interiors, equestrian pieces, landscapes and portraits. From 1660, however, he chose to only do cityscapes, of which he painted a great deal before his tragic death by drowning in a canal in 1698.
