Adriaen van Eemont (1626 – 10 September 1662) was a Dutch Golden Age painter.


Van Eemont was born and died in Dordrecht. According to Houbraken he was "as good a bird painter as Melchior d'Hondecoeter.[1] Houbraken had mentioned him twice earlier; as a specialist in painting water birds and plants, and as the teacher of the Dordrecht painter Johannes Offermans.[2][3]

According to the RKD he is known for fruit still lifes and is possibly the same person as the landscape painter who signed with the monogram "AVE".[4] He worked in Amsterdam, Heusden and France.[4] In France he traveled with Frederik de Moucheron to Paris and Lyon.[4]

There is still some uncertainty about the nature of his work; though Houbraken was so certain that he had specialized in birds and plants, the Dordrechts Museum has a work by him that is more reminiscent of Haarlem works such as those by Adriaen van Ostade.[4][5]
