Johannes Theodorus (Jan) Toorop, also: Jean Theodor Toorop, (Poerworedjo (Dutch East Indies), 20 December 1858 – The Hague, 3 March 1928) was one of the most important Dutch visual artists from the period 1880-1910. He initially painted in impressionist style, but through pointillism he developed into a symbolist painter. He was also active as a portrait artist and he designed ceramics, advertising posters and book bindings. Dutch art nouveau is often associated with his work. In the last twenty years of his life he was strongly inspired by Roman Catholicism. He was the father of Charley Toorop, grandfather of artist Edgar Fernhout and filmmaker John Fernhout and great-grandfather of Rik Fernhout – four generations of artists.
