17th-Century Dutch School Portrait Of A Lady

17th-Century Dutch School Portrait Of A Lady

A charming mid-17th-century Dutch school portrait of a lady wearing a black dress with a white collar and bonnet. This exquisite piece is a window into a time gone by when Amsterdam was alive with new cultural experiences, vast new buildings, and a wealthy middle-class.

Who is this lady? Her identity has been lost over time but she was clearly from a family with means. The portrait has been rendered beautifully by a well-trained hand. Note the veins towards the lady’s temple.

Her outfit fits well alongside other portraits from around 1650 such as this one by Willem Drost (1633-1659).

The portrait is housed within a fine hand-carved wooden frame.

Please note that this painting will need to be crated if shipped overseas. A cost for the crate will be added on during checkout.
