Catalogue Note

Archduke Wilhelm Leopold of Austria was the youngest son of The Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II of Hapsburg and his wife Maria-Anna of Bavaria. He was the Governor of the Spanish Netherlands between 1647-1656, and was an avid collector and patron of the arts.

Pieter Thijs became a Master of the Antwerp Guild of Saint Luke in 1644-5 and from circa 1647 he was actively involved working for Archduke Wilhelm Leopold in Brussels, as well as for the rival court of the House of Orange in The Hague. The flower garland is the work of another hand.
