JOHN ZACHARY KNELLER,
who was thirteen years older than Sir Godfrey, came to England with him, and painted in fresco, architecture, and still-life, pieces in oil, and lastly water-colours, in which he copied several of his brother's heads. Sir Godfrey drew his portrait, one of his best works. Of John's was a piece of still-life with a great tankard in the middle; and a small head of Wyck, almost profile, in oil, in the possession of Dr. Barnard, Bishop of Derry, with the names of both artists, dated 1684. John Kneller died in 1702 in Covent-garden, and was buried in that church.
painted draperies for Kneller, and went to Brussels with him in 1697, where Sir Godfrey drew the Elector of Bavaria on a white horse. I don't know whether Bakker ever practised for himself. He was brother of Adrian Bakker, who painted history and portraits at Amsterdam, and died in 1686.
another of Kneller's assistants, was scholar of J. De Baan, and lived many years in London ; died at Dort. See an account of him in the third volume of Descamps.____________________
