The details (from wikipedia)


Jan van Cleef (or Jan van Cleve) (6 January 1646 – 18 December 1716) was a Dutch-born Flemish painter.


Van Cleef was born in Venlo in the duchy of Guelders. He was a pupil of Luigi Primo (Gentile) and Gaspard de Craeyer. When Craeyer died, Cleef was commissioned to complete his master's work in the churches and to finish the cartoons for the tapestry ordered by Louis XIV.

He was a prolific painter of religious works, for churches and convents in Flanders and Brabant are rich in his paintings. His style was more Italian than Flemish. One masterpiece is Nuns Giving Aid during the Plague, in the convent of the Black Nuns, at Ghent, the city where he died, aged 70.
