Portrait of Catharina van der Voort, Abraham van den Tempel, 1667

oil on canvas, h 133cm × w 106cm More details

Catharina’s wealth radiates from this portrait. Van den Tempel positioned her before a balustrade, near a rosebush. Adorned with pearls and other costly jewels, she literally spreads her wealth before our eyes: the voluminous folds of her sumptuous gown extend across the full width of the painting, giving her an imposing air.
