Anthony (1686–1767), 6th Viscount Montagu, was Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of England, one of two governing bodies of Freemasonry in England in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century, in 1732.

Although of Dutch origin, the artist was born in England. His father, Adriaen and grandfather, Willem were painters, the former of landscapes and the latter of maritime scenes. Johan, who may have been a pupil of Sir Godfrey Kneller (1646–1723), followed in their footsteps, painting portraits, landscapes and harbour scenes.
