Johann Kerseboom (died 1708), Artist

Artist associated with 32 portraits
Portrait painter Johann Kerseboom initially worked in Germany before coming to England in the 1680s with his uncle, portraitist Frederick Kerseboom. He set up a practice in London as a painter of portraits, where he met with greater success than his elder relative. A number of his portraits were engraved in mezzotint by engravers including John Smith. He is best known for his portrait of Robert Boyle, which became the standard image of the scientist.
