Biographical information
Period of activity
1628 - 1652
Van Vliet's first dated work is from 1628 (Hollstein et al. 1949-2010, vol. 41 (1992), no. 99-106). His last dated works are from 1635 (Hollstein et al. 1949-2010, vol. 41 (1992), no. 11, 32-49 and 59-72). In a document of 1637 it is mentioned that Van Vliet received a payment from the State General for a print with the Triumph of Frederik Hendrik van Oranje-Nassau (Hollstein et al. 1949-2010, vol. 41 (1992), no. 97). His artistic production declined since then. Somewhere after c. 1652 he made a print after a work by Rembrandt which prototype is generally dated c. 1652 (Hollstein et al. 1949-2010, vol. 41 (1992), no. 96). Also, the painting in the Hermitage Museum in St. Peterburg attributed to Van Vliet is generally dated in the late 1650s (RKD Images no. 296408).
Active in
  • Antwerpen 1632
    The only generally accepted drawing by Van Vliet holds the inscription 'twer. 1632' (RKD Images no. 296411). This inscription has been interpreted as indicating that Van Vliet possibly travelled to Antwerp in 1632 (see for instance: Hinterding et al. 2000, p. 50-51).
  • Leiden 1628 - 1652
    Van Vliet probably resided in Leiden for all his life (Oestgeest 1990, p. 134; Schuckman/Royalton-Kisch/Hinterding 1996, p. 6).
