{{subst:Quick infobox|Martin Johnson||1686|}} Martin Johnson (died 1686?), seal-engraver and landscape-painter, was especially noted for his skill in engraving seals and medals (see Evelyn, Sculptura). He is stated to have used the graver only, and not a punch, like his rival, Thomas Simon Johnson was also a landscape-painter of some repute, and his works were much appreciated by his contemporaries. He died in London about 1686.[DNB 1][DNB 2][1]
