Portrait of a lady
oil on canvas

Edith Greindl dates this Portrait of a lady to the period between 1621 and 1631, placing it at the peak of Cornelis de Vos' career. His art, at that time, was characterised by a fluency of composition, complete mastery of technique, a varied palette of colours and a brushwork which Greindl describes as 'already impressionistic'.

Lot Essay

Edith Greindl date ce Portrait de dame dans les années 1621-1631, qui correspondent à l'apogée stylistique de Cornelis de Vos. Son art est alors caractérisé par l'aisance de la composition, la virtuosité de la technique, la variété du coloris et une facture que Greindl qualifie de 'déjà impressionniste'.
