Footnotes

  • Michiel van Miereveldt was not only one of the most popular portrait painters with the leading citizens of his home town of Delft, but was one of the relatively few Dutch portrait painters in the first half of the 17th century whose patrons were not limited to his own place of residence. After becoming the official court portrait painter to the stadholder court from 1607 - producing many portraits of members of the House of Orange Nassau - he received numerous commissions from other noble families of the Dutch Republic, as well as from foreign diplomats based in the Hague.
