The esteemed portraitist Backer painted this likeness of Lutma’s wife as a pendant to that of the silversmith himself. Few artists had themselves portrayed like this, together with their spouse. Johannes Lutma clearly aspired to an elevated social status. Not just for himself, but also for the art he practised.
