According to Arnold Houbraken he left Utrecht for Brussels and made small paintings in the style of Rubens that were quite popular. He married young, and died young.[1]

According to the Netherlands Institute for Art History, Aert Jansz was the son of the glass painter Jan Aertsz Marienhof and their work is sometimes confused with each other.[2] Today this name is generally only used in reference to paintings.
