VENNE, Adriaen Pietersz. van de
(b. 1589, Delft, d. 1662, The Hague)
A Cavalier at His Dressing Table1631
Oil on panel, 40 x 33 cm
This painting probably had a companion piece representing a Lady at Her Toilet. Like many of the grisailles by Van de Venne, the present painting is likely to be emblematic, and a comment on wordly vanity.
