oil on panel, h 69.7cm × w 60cm. More details

This young Amsterdam man from a good family – he was later a mayor of Amsterdam – married Aegje Hasselaer in 1640. The young couple had their portraits painted on that occasion, but not in Amsterdam. They went to Delft, where Michiel van Mierevelt headed a large and successful workshop. He produced solid work, and you always knew what to expect from him.
