1580/951665, Nov 4
a Flemish painter who was mainly active in England where he was known for his portraits and history paintings. He was also active as an art dealer and impresario. His work was generally less accomplished and his portraits more stiffly articulated than that of similar painters such as Daniel Mijtens. However, the surfaces of his paintings are decorative and the background of the Portrait of William Cecil, 2nd Earl of Salisbury contains an historically important view of Hatfield House with sportsmen in the foreground. Geldorp was also active as a collaborator and copyist of Anthony van Dyck and later Peter Lely.
