Portrait of Lucas de Clercq, Frans Hals, c. 1635

oil on canvas, h 126.5cm × w 93cm. More details

Frans Hals, like no other, was able to bring his sitters to life. In this portrait, the Haarlem merchant Lucas de Clercq is shown with his left arm akimbo and his right arm resting on his stomach. Even though his hands are hidden and still, his vitality is expressed in the animated contour of his body and his slightly turned head.
