VINNE, van der, Dutch family of artists

They were Mennonites from Haarlem, and about ten members of the family practised as artists during the 17th and 18th centuries. Some members of the family were also employed in the manufacture and sale of textiles. Vincent I Laurensz. van der Vinne (1628-1702) is best known for his travel diaries and sketches. It is possible that some of the drawings attributed to him are by his son Laurens Vincentsz. van der Vinne (1658-1729), whose brothers Jan Vincentsz. van der Vinne (1663-1721) and Izaak Vincentsz. van der Vinne (1665-1740) were also artists. Three of Laurens's children worked as painters and engravers: Vincent II Laurensz. van der Vinne (1686-1742), Jacob Laurensz. van der Vinne (1688-1737) and Jan Laurensz. van der Vinne (1699-1753). In the next generation Jacob's son Laurens Jacobsz. van der Vinne (1712-42) became a flower painter, and two of Jan's children, Jan Jansz. van der Vinne (1734-1805) and Vincent Jansz. van der Vinne (1736-1811), seem to have been the last artists active in the family.
