Portrait of Johannes Hudde, Michiel van Musscher, 1686

oil on canvas, h 57cm × w 49cm × d 6cm More details

Johannes Hudde was burgomaster of Amsterdam, a governor of the VOC and a respected mathematician. He is here shown wearing a japonse rok (Japanese robe) of Chinese silk, embroidered with gold and coloured thread. As the VOC did not import such items of clothing from China, the garment was most likely made in Amsterdam. The comfortable robe was worn at home and here contributes to the portrait’s air of informality.
