Also known as Jan, the nephew of Roelandt (q.v.). He worked with Roelandt in Prague at the court of the Emperor Rudolf II, and afterwards continued to serve as his uncle’s assistant in Utrecht. After Roelandt died, he continued running the workshop in his own right. He was particularly celebrated as an animal painter and is particularly well-known for his 1651 picture of a dodo, which may well have been based on studies of the live specimen to be seen in Rudolf’s menagerie in Prague.
