l.r. "Ant: van dyck pinxit. W Hollar fecit / 1641". Partial, lower part of the Arms of Amsterdam. With M2001/32/14 is M2001/32/15, which appears to have been a label originally with the print. In black ink (with additional comments in red chalk), this reads: 'Claire Maria, Dogter van Johannes [in red chalk: 'de jonger'] van Nassaú Siegen ^ / 1ste Gemael Alb. Henv. vorst van Ligne, 2de Gemael [illeg.] / Mans Broeder Claúdiús Lamoralius Vorst van Ligne / Obüt 4 Novemb: 1695; / [in red chalk: 'D[?]de [illegible] 257.']. [Dutch(?): Claire Maria, daugther of Joannes the Younger of Nassau-Siegen. First married Alb[ert?] Henry, prince ['vorst' appears to equal the German Fürst] of Ligne. Married secondly his brother Claudius Lamoralius, prince of Ligne. Died 4 November 1695.] Given the identity of the subject (Henrietta Maria), this label is mistaken or misapplied..
