Special Notice

Christie's charge a buyer's premium of 20.825% of the hammer price for lots with values up to NLG 200,000. If the hammer price exceeds the NLG 200,000 then the premium is calculated at 20.825% of the first NLG 200,000 plus 11.9% of any amount in excess of NLG 200,000.

Lot Essay

It is to be noted that a portrait of an elderly lady, also signed and dated 1644, is in the Museum Boymans van Beuningen, Rotterdam (R.E.O.Ekkart, Nederlandse Portretten uit de zeventiende eeuw, 1995, pp.197/8, no.71, ill.). Both portraits reveal influence of Rembrandt. The presence of the artist in The Hague in 1644 is confirmed by the inscription Fecit Haga in the present lot. He had settled there in 1643 after much travel notably in France.
The sitter has not as yet been identified.
