Magnificent double portrait in style of Bartholomeus van der Heist 1616-1670

Magnificent double portrait in style of Bartholomeus van der Heist 1616-1670 A large and dramatic double portrait in the style of Bartholomeus van der Helst, one of the great portraitists of the Dutch Golden Age of painting. Van der Helst's portraits were much in demand by the elite of Amsterdam. He often portrayed subjects life-size with dramatic poses and hand gestures, as in this portrait of the swashbuckling male figure. His portraits are often set against evocative backgrounds. This large, powerful and decorative Dutch double portrait, circa 1650-1680, bears a very close resemblance to van der Helst's style and technique and could be attributed to him. — More Information
