Portrait of a Man in a Black Wig

This is a half-length portrait of an unidentified sitter in an oval surround. It was formerly attributed to Caspar Netscher, but is now recognised as a work by Maes, who painted a number of portraits of this type in his later years. There is another portrait by Maes of the same sitter, signed and dated 1665 (formerly Washington, Johnson collection).
