Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger (1561 or 1562-1636), Painter

Sitter in 2 portraits
Artist associated with 29 portraits
Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger spent his early years in Bruges, Belgium, where his father, Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder, was active as a painter and printmaker. When he was about seven, the family moved to London. Gheeraerts eventually obtained many commissions from the English court, both for portraits and for decorative work. He was the most distinguished and most fashionable portraitist of the 1590s, popular at the courts of Elizabeth I and James I, but fell out of favour with James's wife, Anne of Denmark, after 1617. After that date, Gheeraerts's sitters came increasingly from the gentry.
