FREDERICK KERSEBOOM (1632 – 1693)
Kerseboom came from a family of painters. His nephew Johann (John) Kerseboom (active c. 1683-1708) settled in Covent Garden, London, in the 1680s. Frederick studied in Amsterdam and from 1650 in Paris under Charles Le Brun before proceeding to Rome. He remained there for 14 years, two of which were spent in Nicolas Poussins’s studio.
After having moved to London, he produced history paintings, known now from engravings, in Poussin's manner. Frederick may have discovered that portrait painting was more lucrative in England, that said relatively few examples of his work are known. His clientele were largely aristocrats, and he is known to have painted several subjects in the Midland Counties during the 1680s. Kerseboom also painted on glass.
