US$20,799.87

About

Magnificent Dutch 17th century old master portrait of a lady. This stunning portrait features one of the most accurate and delicate renderings of lace and jewels we have ever seen in portraits of the 17th century. Please feel free to compare the details with other paintings of the period, they are exquisite. The artist was clearly very talented and invested a lot of time in creating this true treasure of a painting (for example; he lace was painted in a very delicate but also time-consuming manner many other artists of the period would have painted this in a less detailed but faster way often resulting in a very "flat" looking fabric). The work has an old attribution to Jacob Delff (with Christie's in the 1980s), but Dr. Fred Meijer believes that it was created by Paulus Hennekin given they highly detailed rendering of the lace. A very similar portrait of a lady, also attributed to Hennekin, was exhibited at the TEFAF art fair in 2002 (it's registered in the Rkd under number 48497). The quality and condition are outstanding which is very rare for works of the period as they were all painted thinly and many have suffered during the course of time. This work will be shipped in a tailor-made crate. If you would like to see a photographic preview as to how this masterpiece would look in your home, please let us know.
