Penelope Cleyn was the youngest child of the German émigré artist and tapestry designer Franz Cleyn (1582-1652). Apart from the fact that she trained in her father’s London studio, very little is known of her activities. Along with Susanne Penelope Rosse, Penelope Cleyn is one of the few woman artists whose name has come down to us today.
