Van Dyck's portraiture influenced Hanneman until the end of his successful career. Hanneman remained indebted to his Flemish predecessor with respect to poses, the rendering of fabrics, and the confident gaze of his sitters.

The bust in the present self-portrait is identified as representing a marble sculpture of St Susanna, made by François Duquesnoy in the Santa Susanna di Loreto in Rome. This statue was a great success and plaster casts and bronze copies were already made in the seventeenth century.
