Tillemans was born and trained in Antwerp. He was brought to England in 1708 by a picture dealer who used him to copy old master paintings. He specialised in topographical landscapes and travelled around England and Wales painting estates and houses. A central figure in the London art world, Tillemans taught Nollekens and Arthur Devis. He also painted scenery.
