It is not known how Jan II was related to the famous Haarlem painter Jan Miense Molenaer. There is actually not much information known about Jan II, who worked as a painter in Haarlem during the last quarter of the 17th century.

Until now one more, but unsigned, comic scene with monks and prostitutes was known by Jan II. This is actually an extremely rare subject in 17th century Dutch genre scene painting.
