Richard Van Bleeck was born in The Hague in the Netherlands in 1670 and was the son of a sculptor. In 1695 he was the master of a studio and a member of the Guild in The Hague but in the same year he left for London. His work at this time includes his portrait of Sir James Holt c. 1700 which can be seen in the National Portrait Gallery in London. He returned to The Hague in 1705, the year in which he painted his celebrated portrait of the still-life painter, Coenraet Roepel. By 1727 he had returned to London where he established a successful portrait practice, notably among Roman Catholic families.
