HALS, Frans
(b. 1580, Antwerpen, d. 1666, Haarlem)

Portrait of a Man

Oil on canvas, 75 x 58 cm
Staatliche Museen, Berlin

This painting and its pendant represent a prosperous young Haarlem couple in their Sunday best. The man and the woman look at the artist very differently: she directly, he with an evasive, rakish tilt.
