Bust of a Man, Probably Vincent Coster, Hendrik de Keyser (I), 1608

Bust of a Man, Probably Vincent Coster, Hendrik de Keyser (I), 1608

marble (rock), h 75cm. More details

Elegantly draped over this man’s doublet, the raised collar of which is clearly visible, is a cloak like those worn by the ancient Romans. This gives the sitter an aristocratic air. Yet it is only an affluent citizen who is portrayed here: probably Vincent Coster, an Amsterdam ‘wine gauger’ (someone who calculated the excise duty on wine).
