Collection Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle
Artist Attributed to Flemish School
Previously attributed to Dutch School

The unknown female sitter is represented three-quarter-length, wearing a black dress. The white lace cape that covers her shoulders was fashionable in the later decades of the seventeenth century. A jewelled cross hangs from her neck onto her chest. Her puffed sleeves and her hairstyle also suggest that this portrait was painted between 1660 and 1670.

The painting may be a copy of a work by Isaack Luttichuys, Ludolf de Jongh or Jan van Rosum, who were active in Amsterdam in those years.
