Jan Worst (ca.1635, Amsterdam? – ca.1686, Amsterdam), was a Dutch Golden Age painter.

The Dutch artist and art historian Arnold Houbraken described Worst as a painter of Italianate landscapes that were quite good, but he spent most of his time making drawings which were popular among collectors.[1] He travelled to Italy, where he spent time with his friend and colleague Johannes Lingelbach.[1]

According to The Netherlands Institute for Art History (the RKD) Worst was in Rome from 1645-1650, and in France in 1655-1656.[2] He is known today for his landscape drawings of ruins.[2]
