Portrait of Lysbeth van Duvenvoorde, anonymous, c. 1430

Oil on parchment mounted on plexiglass, h 32cm × w 20cm. Catalogue entry

‘Long have I yearned for the man who would open his heart.’ With these words, inscribed in Middle Dutch on the Sshaped banderole, Lysbeth of Duvenvoorde expressed her feelings for her husband. She hailed from a noble Dutch family and in 1430 married the knight Simon van Adrichem, a bailiff and dike-reeve of the Rhineland waterboard around Leiden. This portrait was painted that same year.
