Portrait of Oopjen Coppit, Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, 1634
In contrast to the newcomer Marten, Oopjen’s family had already been living in Amsterdam for generations. Her grandfather had made his fortune trading grain and gunpowder, and her father belonged to Amsterdam’s small group of powerful rulers. Even though Oopjen’s clothing is less modern than Marten’s, with her black silk gown and expensive jewellery she was certainly showing off her wealth.
