Attributed to Pieter FRANCHOIJS , 1606 - 1654

Portrait of Lucas Fayd'herbe (?)

Date: about 1640-50
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 99.1 x 79.7 cm
Acquisition credit: Wynn Ellis Bequest, 1876

Lucas Fayd'Herbe was a cousin of Pieter Franchoijs and had returned to his native Malines in Belgium by 1640. The costume has been dated to about 1640-50.

Fayd'herbe was a pupil of Rubens, but Franchoijs has painted his cousin as a fashionable gentleman rather than as an artist. At this time artists were being presented and commemorated as worthy additions to the traditional careers that qualified as 'Famous Men'.
