Portrait of a Woman, Possibly Maria Trip, Rembrandt van Rijn, 1639

oil on panel, h 107cm × w 82cm More details

The young sitter is assumed to be Maria Trip, the daughter of a wealthy Amsterdam merchant. She displays her wealth with pride. Her dress is trimmed with white linen so fine it is almost transparent. She sports a fortune in pearls, and in her left hand she casually holds the knobbed handle of a folding fan. In 1639 this was still a rare and costly accessory.

On display in room 2.8
