Nationality/school
North Netherlandish, German
Born
Workum (Nijefurd) 1630
Houbraken states he was born in Workum. According to later sources c. 1610. However, he was probably born in or c. 1630 (supposedly having died at the age of 74).
Deceased
München 1704-06/1704-06-27
According to some sources he died near Vienna, 74 years old. This is erroneous, as he was buried on 27 June 1704 in Munich: In the church book of the Munich Frauenkirche, it is mentioned, that '1704 den 27. Juni ....Hr. Jacob Bottmaier gewester Cammerdiener und Maler bey Durchl. Herzog Maximilian Philip hier begraben worden ist in der St. Apollonia Capellen' (Epple 1989 p. 184).
