Portrait of Adriana Croes, Johannes Cornelisz. Verspronck, 1644

oil on canvas, h 93cm × w 75cm × d 8cm More details

Adriana Croes had herself immortalized by Verspronck when she had been widowed for several years. She and her husband, the cloth merchant Hendrick Pietersz Strijp, had five daughters. Years later, one of them, Maria, and her husband, Eduard Wallis, were also portrayed by Verspronck; their likenesses hang nearby. Adriana’s face is so realistically painted that it seems to reflect all her joys and sorrows.
