Portrait of a Nobleman

c. 1670
The sitter engages the eye of the viewer with a certain calm intensity which, given that his hand is also raised to his breast, may denote a marriage portrait. His identity is lost to us today but his aristocratic demeanour is suggested by the sword he carries in his other hand and by the fashionable Spanish "golilla" collar.
