LELY Sir Peter (b. 1618, Soest, d. 1680, London) Nationality : Dutch

Dutch Baroque portrait painter known for his Van Dyck-influenced likenesses of the mid-17th-century English aristocracy. He was born as Pieter van der Faes in Soest, Westphalia, on 14 September 1618. He was the son of Abigael van Vliet, the daughter of a prominent Utrecht family, and Johan van der Faes, a captain in the regiment of Baron Walraven van Gent. The regiment, which served the Elector Palatine of Brandenburg, was quartered in Soest and various other parts of Westphalia around the time that Lely was born. According to Houbraken, Peter came to be known as Lely, the Dutch word for 'lily', because his father was born in a house in The Hague with 'a lily on the facade'.
