Portrait of Gerard Cornelis van Riebeeck, Mattheus Verheyden, c. 1755

canvas, h 206cm × w 122cm. More details

Van Riebeeck had himself portrayed against the back-ground of his estate. He was an influential regent, who from a young age served as town secretary of Delft. Here, he wears a gold brocaded coat with matching cuffs. The large number of buttons sewn on his clothing is remarkable: most are purely decorative, as are the large buttonholes on the coat.
