Karel van Mander III
According to Houbraken, who confused him with his father Karel van Mander the Younger, he learned to paint from his father and became a good portrait painter. His portrait of Christian IV was honored with a poem by Joost van den Vondel. His portrait of Vondel with gray hair in the same year was also rewarded with a Vondel poem.
According to the RKD he was a pupil of his father and was influenced by Frans Hals. He worked in Copenhagen in 1631, and travelled to Italy from 1635-1638. When he returned North he settled in Copenhagen in the company of Abraham Wuchters. He is registered in Amsterdam in 1657 (probably due to the painting mentioned by Vondel).
