Vessels in a Strong Wind, 1630, by Jan Porcellis

Jan Porcellis (1583/5 – 29 January 1632)[1] was a Dutch marine artist.

Porcellis was born in Ghent. He was the father of the marine artist Julius Porcellis (they shared a similar repertoire of subjects and an identical signature monogram), and is generally agreed to be the more fluent artist, particularly in his sense of space and his tonal palette (subtler than his son's). He died at Zoeterwoude.
