Hondius was a Dutch artist, but little is known about his early career. He left the Netherlands in 16712 to settle in London, working initially on projects for the Guildhall and for the Royal College of Physicians. In England, he mainly painted large town views and hunting scenes without figures, but he was also known to paint portraits.
