Biography   Jan Smit

Little is known of the Dutch marine painter Jan Borritsz Smit except that he was born 1598 in Amsterdam, and died there in 1644.  He was a reformist by belief, so there are a few accounts of Smit in the city's archives; an entry of his marriage in 1622 and the baptism of his son for example.

 The Dutch art-historian Abraham Bredius (1855-1946) mentions Jan Borritsz Smit in his monograph, where he writes that he saw paintings by Smit in several of Amsterdam's inventories.  An artwork signed and dated 'J. Borriss Smit 1621' could also be found in the Nostitz collection, Prague.
