Michiel Van Miereveldt was one of the most successful Dutch portraitists of the seventeenth century. The son of a goldsmith, he was born in Delft and trained in Delft and Utrecht, and from 1590 he devoted himself entirely to the art of portraiture. In 1607, he was appointed official painter to the court of the Prince of Orange-Nassau, whom he portrayed in the same year. His role as court painter also emphasised his status as the most fashionable portrait painter of his day, receiving commissions not only from noble families of the Dutch Republic and but also from visitors abroad. His foreign sitters included many eminent English clients who sat for him whilst on their travels to the Netherlands.
