Pieter (or Peter) Van Dyke (1729-1799) was born in The Netherlands and moved to England at the invitation of Sir Joshua Reynolds, to assist in painting draperies. He exhibited at the Incorporated Society of Artists in 1762 and 1764, and at the Free Society of Artists in 1767. There are two portraits painted by Van Dyke (along with a line engraving by C. Widder made after the original of Van Dyke) at the London National Portrait Gallery (in Room 18, to be very exact).
