Biography[edit]

Luttichuys was born in London. According to the RKD he was probably the same person as Simon Littlehouse who painted a portrait of the bishop Thomas Morton of St. John's College, Cambridge in 1637/1638. His name in Dutch sounds like Littlehouse.[1] He was the brother of the painter Isaack Luttichuys and had moved to Amsterdam by 1649.[1] He married an Englishwoman from Norfolk in Amsterdam in 1655, Anna van Peene uit ' Naerfick in Engelant'. He is known for various forms of still life painting and influenced the painter Willem Kalf.[1] He died in Amsterdam.
