Catalogue Note

With its vibrant palette and detailed background, this painting tenderly portrays the sitter in her betrothal or marriage portrait.  In 1773, it was recorded with a pendant, Portrait of a man with a statue of Mercury (see Provenance).  The young woman holds a rosebud and behind her in the elegant garden is a statue of Flora with a wreath of flowers, symbolising Spring and hopefulness.  The unusually complete provenance of the painting reveals that it was in the collection of Johann van der Marck, Burgomaster of Leiden, until its sale in 1773, suggesting that the young woman may have been a member of van der Marck’s family. This painting was probably made in the 1670s, when Slingeland executed most of his delicate, genre-like portraits.
