Portrait of Maria van Strijp, Johannes Cornelisz. Verspronck, 1652

Portrait of Maria van Strijp, Johannes Cornelisz. Verspronck, 1652

olieverf op paneel, h 97cm × w 75cm. More details

Verspronck painted not only Maria van Strijp and her husband, but also her mother and her brother-in-law. He usually portrayed his patrons standing. In this case, however, Maria sits sideways on a chair with its back to the viewer. He borrowed this playful device from portraits by Frans Hals.

On display in Eregalerij Johannes Cornelisz. Verspronck
