Frans Van Mieris II (the Younger) (b. 1689, Leiden, d. 1763, Leiden)

A Dutch painter and writer, he was the grandson of Frans van Mieris the Elder and son and pupil of Willem van Mieris.  His oeuvre includes portraits, several small history paintings and many genre scenes (e.g. the Grocer's Shop Seen through an Arched Window, 1715; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), which stylistically and thematically are similar to his father's work.

The picture titled Three Generations (1742; Stedelijk Museum De Lakenhal, Leiden), shows him standing alongside his father, Willem, and holding in one hand a portrait of his famous grandfather, Frans, while pointing with the other to Houbraken's book De groote schouburgh, (The Great Theatre of Dutch Painters, 1718-21).

In addition to being a painter, he was well known for his historical and numismatic writings.
