(b. ca. 1603, Den Haag, d. 1671, Den Haag)

Portrait of a Woman

c. 1653
Oil on canvas, 80 x 64 cm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

This portrait is one of several portraits of upper-middle-class women in which the painter varied a standard compositional scheme. The graceful proportions of the figure recall Van Dyck's manner of flattering female subjects.
