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.
