The sitter was a rich merchant at Dordrecht who commissioned all famous portraitists of the period to paint his portrait. The last one was executed by Rembrandt in 1661. Maes was influenced by the style of Rembrandt when executing this portrait. The companion-piece of the painting represents the wife of Jacob Trip and it is also exhibited in the Budapest museum.
