Cornelia and her husband Johan Servaes van Limburch (whose portrait is also in the Rijksmuseum) each had their likeness painted and set in a matching frame. Every detail bespeaks her status: the costly silk gown and the exceptionally large pearls adorning her ears and décolleté. The frame, too, attests to her privileged background. Her parents’ coats of arms feature in the top corners, and those of her two grandmothers in the bottom corners.
