Jacob Willemsz. de Wet I ( Haarlem c.1610 - Haarlem c.1671 )
Jacob Willemsz. de Wet I was a Dutch painter and draughtsman. It seems unlikely that he is the same as the Jacobus de Wit who was a member of the Alkmaar Guild of St Luke in 1637 or as the Jan de Wet (b Hamburg, c. 1617) who was a pupil of Rembrandt. Sumowski has disentangled his work from that of Gerrit de Wet (d 1674), Daniel Thievaert (1613–57) and of his son, Jacob de Wet the younger (b Haarlem, c. 1640; d Amsterdam, 11 Nov 1697).
