Portrait of Carolina Frederica Kerst, Wife of Louis Royer, Charles van Beveren, 1830
Charles van Beveren painted the sculptor Louis Royer and his wife after the couple had returned from Italy. Royer sits in his studio, surrounded by the works he produced during his years in Rome. These were purchased by the Dutch state on his return. Two of these sculptures are displayed in this gallery. Works by Royer also appear in the background of his wife’s portrait.
