Description: 1 Prestigious Dutch merchant and gentleman portrait in a fine large early 17th-century oil painting. A prosperous, bearded Dutch merchant gentleman is portrayed in a three-quarter length front profile perspective. The extravagant broad white lace collar cuffs and luxurious black clothing he is sporting—the finest vogue at the time—indicate that the sitter is very important and wealthy in Dutch society. He is in a standing position, staring directly at the viewer, with one arm leaning over a table and the other hand resting on his hip. He had dark hair and a well-kept beard. You can see that he is wearing a chained loop belt and a gold ring on his little finger. In addition, the painting's upper right corner features a stunning cartouche with winged cherubs on either side and an unique and intriguing picture of a key.
