Bartholomäus Bruyn founded an important school of portraiture in Cologne, where there was previously no such tradition. He mainly painted the patricians of the city, but none of his portraits are signed, nor documented as his altarpieces are. These likenesses are typical of Bruyn's more stylised portraits, set against a bright, plain background, with attention to detail in the figures' accessories. The rosary held by the lady here appears in a number of other portraits by Bruyn, such as that dated 1531, recorded in the collection of Freiherr von Ketteler-Harkotten, Schloss Schwarzenraben.1
