Jan de Bisschop, also known as Johannes Episcopius (1628–1671), was a lawyer, who became a Dutch Golden Age painter and engraver.
He learned to draw from Bartholomeus Breenbergh,
Bisschop was born into a good familie and was the example of a painter who practiced art more for pleasure than for a living. Bisschop was a founding member of the Confrerie Pictura
According to Houbraken he was a lawyer for the Dutch court, and did a great service to the arts with his instructional drawings copied from the artists Tintoretto, Jacopo Bassano, Annibale Carracc, Paolo Veronese, Rubens, and van Dyck.
