1652 ca1718
a Dutch Golden Age painter who was active in England, where he was admitted to the London Company of Painter-Stainers in 1677. He produced views of Rhineland landscapes as well as of the English countryside, and returned to the Netherlands for a decade after ca 1695, but was engaged for at least two decades in England where he worked for the Dutch painter Jan Looten (1618-ca.1681). Griffier's work as a draughtsman reflects his training by Roghman; as an etcher, he is remembered for a series of plates of birds after Francis Barlow.
