Joseph van Aken moved at a young age from Antwerp to London, where he would develop over thirty years a successful career as a painter of genre scenes and of conversation pieces: these were colourful, small-scale, informal group portraits. He also became the most important drapery painter of the early Georgian period: he painted the attitudes and costumes of figures for many important portrait painters.
