Richard van Orley was a pupil of his father Peter and later of his uncle Hieronimous. He is best known for his miniature pictures which are of an exceptional quality although he also executed large cartoons for the Tapestry factories.
He is known to have lived in Italy for some time where he was much influenced by the works of Pietro da Cortona and Albani.
