Catalogue note:
Cornelius Johnson or Cornelis Janssens van Ceulen, was an English painter of
portraits of Dutch or Flemish parentage. He was active in England, from at least
1618 to 1643, and then moved to The Netherlands to escape the English Civil
War. Between 1646 and 1652 he lived in Amsterdam, before settling in Utrecht,
where he died.
Janssens painted many portraits of emerging new English gentry. His early
portraits were panel paintings with ‘fictive’ oval frames. His works can be found
in major collections in the UK and overseas as well as in private collections in
stately homes in Britain.
