Janssen, Cornelius (1593-1664) by Scholes, Robert

He was born in London, where his parents were Flemish refugees. He is also known as Cornelius Johnson Van Ceulen, or Van Keulen, Johnson, Jonson, Jansen, or Janson. He painted portrait busts almost exclusively, at and around the courts of James I and Charles I, but he also painted Oliver Cromwell’s daughters. Apparently eclipsed by the arrival of Van Dyck in England, he moved to the Netherlands in the 1640s and remained there the rest of his life.
