Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A Dutch portrait painter, especially of aristocratic persons, Jan Portielje studied under Valentijn Bing (1812-95) in Amsterdam and later with Jan Braet von Uberveldt (1807-94).  In 1849 he went to the Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten in Antwerp, where he took lessons with J.-L. Dyckmans (1811-88).

After this period of training he spent two years in Paris and traveled in France and Germany. Settling in Brussels, he made a name for himself as a portrait painter, especially in English circles.  He also received commissions from Dutch and American patrons.

Between 1857 and 1884 he took part in exhibitions in Amsterdam and The Hague.  He painted genre scenes and portraits (Gypsy Woman and Woman in Historical Costume

He also worked with Frans Lebret (1820-1909) and Eugene R. Maes (1849-1931).  His sons Edward (1861-1949) and Gerard (1856-1929) were also painters.
