Portrait of Anna Codde

Oil on panel, 86 x 66 cm
Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

The companion-piece of this painting, the portrait of Pieter Bicker Gerritsz. is also in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.

The traditional identification of the couple is probably incorrect, the two portraits represent a young and hard-working couple, they were painted probably to mark their betrothal.
