(b. 1624, Mechelen, d. 1698, The Hague)

Bust of Jacob van Reygersberg

Marble, height 63 cm
J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles

Jacob van Reygersberg (1625-1675) was the regent of Zeeland and an important patron of the sculptor Verhulst. There is a terracotta version in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, which was probably made before the marble, 'from life', to serve as the basis for the working model in plaster.
