Adrian Vanson (Netherlandish, active 1581 - 1602)
Of Flemish origins, Vanson worked in Edinburgh as a court painter from 1584. He was one of a number of French and Netherlandish artists, craftsmen and merchants living in the city. Vanson produced many portraits of members of the court; in 1585 Vanson was admitted as burgess of Edinburgh for his services to the city. He was the father of the artist Adam de Colone.
