Group Portrait of an Unidentified Board of Governors, Thomas de Keyser, c. 1625 - c. 1630

oil on canvas, h 126cm × w 105.8cm. More details

The governors of associations, institutions, and businesses took pride in having themselves portrayed as a group. These three unidentified gentlemen are clearly involved with money and precious objects. On the table before them are a pouch with coins and a beautiful ornate scale for weighing gold and other valuables. The man at the right holds a letter of credit. They may well be bankers.

On display in room 2.5
