h 72.5cm. More details

Hendrik de Keyser made portrait busts in terracotta (fired clay), which he then painted in natural colours. Such portraits were considerably less expensive than sculptures carved in marble. This one still has its original oak pedestal. The doubly talented De Keyser was both a sculptor and a prominent architect.
