Jan van Halmael was a Dutch cloth merchant in Amsterdam. The few records that exist of him do not testify to having a military career. The presence of the armour he is wearing cannot be explained in that respect. The date annotated upper right does not correspond to the period of life dates of the presumed sitter.
