Buyer NotesJean Herel or Harel was born in Aken in 1594, the son of Elizeus Harel and Maria Motte. He remained unmarried and died in 1687. He was a Regent of the Walenweeshuis in 1637, 1638, 1641, and 1642. In 1637, he was one of the four regents of the orphanage portrayed by Bartholomeus van der Helst (Amsterdammers geportretteerd; Kopstukken 1600-1800 (N. Middelkop ed.), Exh. Cat. 2002/2003,, p. 188).
