He gained prominence in England in the first decade of the reign of Elizabeth I as one of many Flemish artists active at the Tudor court.He is best known for the "Barrington Park" portrait type of Elizabeth I and for three-quarter length portraits of members of the English court in the first half of the 1560s.A recently discovered will indicates that he died in London between October 1563 and January 1564.

This new identification has been accepted by a number of institutions, such as Historic Royal Palaces, Tate Britain and the V&A, who have exhibited the above full-length portrait of Elizabeth I as attributed to van Herwijck.

In her 2014 study of the portraiture and patronage of Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester, Elizabeth Goldring raises concerns with identification of van Herwijck as the "paynter Steven".

Recent dendrochronological study of the portrait of John Lumley in the National Portrait Gallery reveals that the painting is correctly dated to the 1570s or 1580s, after the documented deaths of both van der Meulen and van Herwijck.

Of the identification of the painter, the NPG says "The style of painting is consistent with an Anglo-Netherlandish artist from this period....

A portrait pattern of Queen Elizabeth dating to the mid-1560s is confidently attributed to van der Meulen.

Called by Strong the "Barrington Park" type after a representative example, these sophisticated portraits are probably a response to a proclamation of 1563, which was designed to counter the existence of many unflattering images of the Queen. 1563 by van der Meulen (above), identified as the earliest full-length portrait of Elizabeth and possibly associated with the various marriage negotiations of the early 1560s, was auctioned by Sotheby's in November 2007 for £2.6 million, more than twice its expected price of £700,000–£1 million.The discovery of van der Meulen's will dated 1563 and proved in 1564 has raised questions about the identification of the "paynter Steven" and "Master Staffan" with van der Meulen.In the Spring 2009 issue of The British Art Journal Bendor Grosvenor proposed an alternative identification of the painter "Steven" with the medallist Steven van Herwijck.However, as both van der Meulen and van Herwijck died in the 1560s the artist responsible for NPG 5262 must remain as an as yet unidentified émigré".2008 - August 2009Derek Hough and Shannon Elizabeth became an item after they competed together in the sixth season of 'Dancing with the Stars.'
