Born at Amsterdam, in 1659, died in 1708. Considered as one of the most eminent painters of Marine Subjects, of the Dutch School. His pictures usually represent scenes on the Y or the Amstel, near Amsterdam, with a variety of shipping and boats, and a number of small figures, correctly drawn, and touched with great neatness and spirit. His coloring is clear and transparent, and his skies and water, light and floating. His is by some considered little inferior to Backhuysen or Vandervelde. [P. 4.]
