Portrait of a Haarlem Citizen, Jan van Scorel, 1529

oil on panel, h 48.5cm × w 34.5cm. Catalogue entry

Jan van Scorel painted this refined portrait when he was working in Haarlem, so the man was probably a citizen of that town. The work illustrates the increasing interest in the individual in the early 16th century and reflects the growing self-confidence of ordinary townspeople.
