The half-length portraits of Henrick Hooft and Aegje Hasselaer present Amsterdam's future burgomaster and his brand-new bride in expensive, fashionable attire. Their modern, flat collars are trimmed with lace. Following the latest trend they wear their hair long and loose. Aegje is decked out with costly earrings and a breast ornament, while scores of pearls grace her neck and collar.
