Biography[edit]

Griffier was born in England and died in London. According to Houbraken, Jan Griffier's son Robert was born on 7 October 1688, but he mixed up his information on the son Robert Griffier with Jan Jr, who he didn't mention by name at all.[1]

According to the RKD he was the son of Jan Griffier I and the younger brother of Robert.[2] He lived on Pall Mall and influenced the painter Christian August Lorentzen.[2]
