Jan Albertsz Rootius

 (1615 - 1674)
Jan Albertsz Rootius was active/lived in Netherlands.  Jan Rootius is known for painting.

Biography   Jan Albertsz Rootius


Jan Albertsz Rotius was born in Medemblik in 1624 and was active in Alkmaar, where he joined the Guild of Saint Luke, and Hoorn, where he died in 1666.  Little is known for sure concerning his apprenticeship.  

Houbraken reports that he was taught by Pieter Lastman, but this is impossible since this master is known to have died in 1633.  The quality of Rotius' painting and the influences of artists such as Bartholomeus van der Helst could indicate that he was taught in Amsterdam.
