John de Critz (Flemish / English, about 1552 - 1642)
De Critz's family came to England from the Netherlands when he was a boy. He was trained by Lucas de Heere and travelled in France. He was appointed Serjeant-Painter to James I and VI in 1605. Various accounts record payments made for portraits of the king but few works can be confidently ascribed to him.
