Adrianus Johannes (‘Arie’/‘Harry’) Jansen was a Dutch ship-portrait painter who was born in Gouda on 20th April 1863 as the second and only surviving child of Pieter Jansen, at that time a ‘dyer’s assistant’, and his wife Johanna Maria, née Snelleman. Both were Roman Catholics from Gouda and married there in 1860. Jansen’s mother appears to have died before 1885.
