Portrait of a Man, Adriaen Thomasz. Key, 1581

Portrait of a Man, Adriaen Thomasz. Key, 1581

oil om panel, h 44.5cm × w 33.5cm. More details

Unfortunately, the identity of this man wearing a ruff and slashed doublet is not known. The inscription at upper left reveals that he was 38 years old in 1581, when this portrait was painted. To judge from his Latin motto Patientia Spe (‘With patience and hope’), he must have been a cautious man – a trait that is certainly conveyed here.
