[ translate ]

Dutch 17th century old master portrait of a gentleman by Jan Van Ravesteyn\r
\r
This portrait was painted in 1624 and depicts, according to family tradition, Jacob Simonsz De Rycken (also spelled De. Ryck or De Rycke - the wealthy one) . The sitter is gazing at us intently, with eyes full of wisdom. The shimmering golden chain refers to his military rank. The black fabric and white collar were extremely expensive at the time and were considered the epitome of luxury, emphasising the social status of the sitter. \r
\r
The present painting is dated to the top left. The canvas measures 63,5 by 55,5 cms and 74 by 83 cms with the frame (which is in good, stable condition with some wear, will be given as a gift) . The painting is also in very good condition, with very small inpainting here and there. \r
\r
We would like to thank Prof. Dr. Stolwijk of the RKD from the RKD who has confirmed the attribution, the painting is included in the RKD-database under number 309898. \r
