Along with Frans Hals, Cornelis Verspronck was the most sought-after portraitist in Haarlem. Burghers who deemed Hals’ brushstrokes to be too loose, turned to him. Verspronck’s realistic portrait style is brilliantly exemplified in this likeness of a member of the Wallis family, which is laid out in detail in a sober and serene manner. Quite exceptionally it is still in its original frame. A rarity!
