TORRENTIUS Johannes (b. 1589, Amsterdam, d. 1644, Amsterdam) Nationality : Dutch

Dutch painter, born Johannes Sijmonsz van der Beeck. An allegoric still-life intended to advertise the virtue of Temperance (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam) is his only known painting. He hardly took to heart the temperance message of his still-life. Contemporary documents and references establish that he was notorious for his unorthodox conduct and his obscene pictures. He was tortured and sentenced to twenty-years imprisonment by Haarlem's municipal authorities for immorality, blasphemy, and probably for membership in the outlawed Rosicrucian sect.
