Works of Art

Hoskins’s work first becomes identifiable c. 1620–25, and he then appears as a follower of the native tradition of miniature-painting established by Nicholas Hilliard. The arrival of Van Dyck in England in 1632 had a marked effect on his style; he enlarged the size of his miniatures and reflected a more Continental vision in his portraits; he frequently made miniature copies of oil paintings by Van Dyck. He was the uncle and teacher of Samuel Cooper, and appears to have directed a studio which included his son, also John Hoskins.
