Along with the designer and architect Inigo Jones, Isaac Oliver was the first artist working in England in the seventeenth century to produce a significant body of sketches and drawings. He evidently worked on these while simultaneously practising as a portrait miniaturist (see cabinet 1: The Portrait Miniature in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries), but no portrait drawings by him survive.
