Portrait of Magdalena de Cuyper, Jacob Jordaens (I), c. 1635 - c. 1636

oil on canvas, h 152cm × w 118cm. More details

This elderly woman is the mother of Rogier Le Witer (adjacent). She wears a black widow’s cap and a somewhat old-fashioned cloak. In her hands she holds a handkerchief and a prayerbook, the latter symbolizing her piety. The tulip alludes to the tran-sience of earthly existence. This portrait belongs with the two likenesses hanging next to it. That this series is still intact is exceptional.

On display in room 2.4 Jacob Jordaens
