Half-length portrait to the left of Jan Hermansz. van Bijlert (ca.1597 - 1671). Van Bijlert was the son of a glass painter and joined Abraham Bloemaert's workshop in Utrecht. He traveled to France and Italy. In 1621 he was in Rome, where he was one of the founders of the Bentvueghels. In 1624 he was back in Utrecht, where he spent the rest of his life. In 1634 he became regent of the Sint-Jobsgasthuis. Bijlert was a painter of figure paintings and portraits. At first he worked in a Caravaggistic style, but he later exchanged it for a more classical one. Etching and engraving by Pieter de Bailliu (1613 - after 1660), after the painting by Jan Hermansz. van Bijlert (ca.1597 - 1671). Signed in print. Included as an illustration in: C. de Bie.
