Jan Cornelisz Vermeyen

Jan Cornelisz Vermeyen (b.1500, Beverwijk – d.1559, Bruxelles) was a Dutch Northern Renaissance painter.

Vermeyen was a painter and tapestry designer, probably a pupil of Jan Mabuse. About 1525 he became Court Painter to Margaret of Austria, regent of the Netherlands at Mechelen and in 1535 he accompanied the Emperor Charles V to Tunis. This journey supplied him with scenes for later works, including tapestries designed 1545/48 for the Regent, Mary of Hungary.

Many portraits are ascribed to him on very little evidence, according to modern scholars.
