Jan Lievens (1607-1674) was a Dutch painter of the Golden Age, one year younger than Rembrandt, whom he knew quite well. They shared a studio for five years in 1626-1631. Other than that his career was so boring I can't think of anything to say about it. But he could certainly paint. (Portrait of a Bearded Man, c. 1630)
Self portrait, 1630. Quite a mane.
