Portrait of a Lady

Portrait of a Lady by Dirck Santvoort

Artwork Detail Request a print

This is almost certainly a betrothal portrait, for the pose draws attention to the wedding ring on the unknown lady's finger. The technique of painting the hands and the fan demonstrate the particular influence of Rembrandt, the gesture with the fan adding liveliness to an otherwise formal portrait.
