Johannes Kip

Johannes "Jan" Kip (1652/53, Amsterdam – 1722, Westminster) was a Dutch draftsman, engraver and print dealer. Together with Leonard Knyff, he made a speciality of engraved views of English landscapes, architecture and country houses. Born in the Netherlands, Johannes Kip settled in England around 1690. He was a topographical engraver most famous for his depictions of country houses in the book; ‘Britannia Illustrata’ on which he collaborated with Leonard Knyff (1707). Although this is his most well known work, he was a prolific artist who worked on many other important projects, including depictions of County Seats contained in the Worthington Collection.

A new Mid Tennessee art gallery, Worthington Galleries, which features a portion of what many consider to be one of the largest private fine art collections in Tennessee, will open its doors to the public this week. Worthington Galleries, located at 1181 Nashville Pike, will celebrate its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, July 14. The event will be the first time the public can view some of the approximately 150 pieces on display from the collection, which in some cases are thousands of years old.
