olieverf op paneel, h 62.4cm × w 48.3cm. More details

This painting is a ‘memorial tablet’, intended to honour the memory of a deceased person. It probably hung near the tomb of Geertruy Haeck-van Slingelandt van der Tempel in the church of the convent of Saint Agnes in Dordrecht. Although Geertruy was not herself an ordained nun, she is dressed in a nun’s habit as a sign of her piety.
