Frans van Mieris (II) (Jacob Houbraken)

Frans van Mieris, the younger (24 November 1689 – 22 October 1763) was a Dutch painter.

He was born in Leiden, the son of Willem van Mieris, and also followed the traditions of his grandfather, Frans's studio.

Willem bequeathed his painting-room to his son Frans. Neither Willem nor Frans the younger equalled Frans the elder in artistic reputation. Frans died in Leiden.
