Jan Nagel (painter)
Jan Nagel (Dutch pronunciation: [jɑn ˈnaːɣəl]; c. 1560–1602) was a Dutch Renaissance painter.
According to Karel van Mander, who also mentions him on the last page of his Schilder-boeck as the teacher of Claes Jacobsz van der Heck, he was a follower of the Antwerp painter Cornelis Molenaer, as good as he was at landscape painting, but better at portraits, from either Haarlem or Alkmaar, who died at the Hague in 1602. He spelled his name Ian Nagel or Naghel.
According to the RKD his daughter Neeltge married the painter Sijbert Cornelisz Moninckx, father of Pieter Moninckx, and he became a member of the Guild of Saint Luke in the Hague in 1600, where he later died.
