No. 22 from his sketchbook


Jacob Toornvliet was a painter and draughtsman in the Leyden tradition and the pupil of his father, Abraham. He traveled to Rome in 1670 and became a member of the "Bent" (an association of Dutch painters studying and working in Rome). He spent a few years in Venice, married, and by 1678 was active in Vienna. In 1686 he was accepted into the Artists Guild of Leyden and became its head in 1703, a position he maintained until his death, sixteen years later.

Examples of his work are to be found in the Rijksmuseum, the Louvre, and the Albertina and other important European museums.
