Manner of Ferdinand Bol
PORTRAIT OF A MAN
oil on canvas, unlined, unframed


This portrait is a later copy most probably after an as yet unidentified Dutch 17th-century prototype by an artist such as Ferdinand Bol or a painter in his orbit. Portraiture flourished in the Netherlands during the Golden Age as both the bourgeoisie and the rising mercantile class were able to commission their own and others' likenesses. This man's sober black attire, skullcap and simple, flat collar possibly mark him out as some kind of scholar. The work would appear to emulate a painting dating most probably to the mid-17th century.


Unframed: 50.7 x 38.6 cm.; 20 x 15 1/4 in.
