Hendrik Jan Wolter (15 July 1873 - 29 October 1952) was a Dutch liministic painter. In 1895 he as accepted into the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Antwerp. A year after he transferred to the Institut Supérieur. He continued working here for three years and was awarded the Willink van Collen award. During his studies at the Antwerp academy he got acquinted with the works of Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley and became friends with the Belgian luminist Emile Claus. In 1899 he moved to Leusden, near Amersfoort and married Popkolina van Hoorn in 1904. Around 1915 they lived in Laren for the first time and in 1924 they moved there again. Here Wolter built a house that he designed himself "Blommenwijck". In the garden he built a workshop (now Oud Blaricummerweg 46). Near the door a gable stone with the inscription "in veilige haven" (meaning "in safe haven") is visible.
Wolter painted with a quick, short and striking brush strokes and sometimes even used the white of the canvas. This painting depicts the harbor at Camogli, a colourful fishing town near Genua in Italy. 
His work can be seen in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam and Singer Museum, Laren.
