William Wissing, Dutch ca.1656 – 1687

Though from Amsterdam, Wissing’s early training took place under Willem Doudyns, a historical painter of The Hague.  From there it is believed that he went to France where he acquired a passion for metallic flowers, huge weeds and fancy accessories.  It is presumed he entered Sir Peter Lely’s studio upon arriving in England in 1676.  Wissing came to be considered the most important of Lely’s later pupils, and grew into fashion after (showing 500 of 1486 characters).
