Portrait of Machteld Muilman, Frans van der Mijn, c. 1745 - c. 1747
Jan Pranger married his second wife, Machteld Muilman, in 1745. Van der Mijn painted this likeness of her as a pendant to his portrait of Pranger. She is shown in their house on the Singel in Amsterdam, wearing a satin jacket embellished with ermine tails. The costly urn with coffee or hot water for tea on the table and the picture gallery glimpsed in the back-ground also attest to the couple’s affluence.
