About us

We are nineteenth centuary sailing vessels enthusiasts and we're aware of the importance of the paintings Jacob Spin made.


With a high degree of acurracy he made paintings of barques, brick ships and schooners and the early age of steamships. He is the most important visual source for these kind of ships.

In many books on dutch sailing ships his paintings are frequently used.


The process to compose an oeuvre catalogue will take several years and to secure the continuity of this process we have established a Foundation.


This Foundation called "Stichting Jacob Spin" wants to preserve pictures of his ship's portraits for posterity.


You can contact us by sending an email to info@jacobspin.nl , you can also reach and talk to us on our facebook page.
