John Riley (1646-1691) was an English portrait painter. Thought to have come from a well-off family he established himself as the best portrait paintewr in London. He was appointed a court painter by William and Mary although no portraits of them by Riley are known. One of his apprentices was Jonathan Richardson who married Riley's niece and inherited a large number of old masters from Riley. See [1].
