Jan Pranger was Director-General of the Dutch West India Company on the Gold Coast (now Ghana) in West Africa from 1730 to 1734. He stands in his office at the Fort Elmina trading post. All the details underscore the importance of his position: the servant with the parasol (pajung), the commander’s baton on the table and the monogram, GWC, of the Chartered West India Company on the tablecloth.
