Jan van Haensbergen was born in Utrecht in 1642 and died in The Hague in 1705. He was a pupil of Cornelius van Poelenburgh, whose style of landscape painting he successfully imitated. However, he concentrated mainly on portraiture, which provided a good living, and painted many of the elite in The Hague, where he also became known as an art dealer.
