Jan Van Aken on Wikipedia
Jan van Aken (1614 – 25 March 1661 (buried)) was a Dutch Golden Age painter and engraver.Biography
Van Aken was born and died in Amsterdam, but has been frequently confused with the celebrated German painter Johann van Achen of Cologne. Not much is known of his paintings but Bartsch enumerates twenty-one of his etchings, which are touched in the manner of Herman Saftleven. They are very slight but display great mastery.
