Catharina van HEMESSEN , 1527/8 - after 1566?

Portrait of a Woman


Date: 1551
Medium: Oil on oak
Dimensions: 22.8 × 17.6 cm
Acquisition credit: Presented by Mrs D.E. Knollys, 1934

The sitter, who carries a small dog under her arm, is unidentified. She is probably from Antwerp in the Low Countries (modern Belgium) where the artist painted many similar portraits of women.

The small size of the portrait and the three-quarter-length format are characteristic of the artist's work. The depiction of the expression of the face is particularly sympathetic.
