A Dutch Nobleman

Oil on Copper


Larger than the average miniature, this boldly painted portrait is an engaging character study of an unnamed 17th century Dutch gentleman. His hair falls loose over his shoulders whilst his facial hair is neatly styled to emphasize the fullness of his lips. Buttoned down the front, his black doublet is slashed to reveal a white undershirt and has a deep lawn collar with tasseled ties.

Dating to around 1650, the portrait is painted on copper in oils. It is set within a turned wood frame within a later silver-coloured (untested) rim with a hanging ring. It is in fine condition.
