This large scale oil portrait on canvas is a lovely example in the style of the Dutch Golden Age
and accurately conveys a good standard of portraiture with family crest.
This is a Portrait of Adriaen de Kies van Wiessen wearing a black doublet with a white lace ruff, depicted standing in a room setting.
He is wearing the style of clothing that was fashionable in Holland during the early to mid 17th century.
Clothes and accessories were of enormous importance. Often immense sums were spent on them, and sitters were justifiably proud and anxious to show them off.
Their clothes and accessories also carried strong social connotations.
Black was the high fashion of that era and this portrait rises to the challenge of painting black on black to depict the floral pattern of the vlieger overgown.
CORNELIS VAN DER VOORT or van der Voorde (Antwerp 1576 - Amsterdam 1624) flourished as a painter in Amsterdam from around 1614 to his death in 1624.
Van de Voort's work was in great demand and held in high esteem. In 1619 Van der Voort was the head of the Guild of St. Luke. He had a strong influence on the early portraits of Rembrandt, as well as the work of Nicolaes Eliasz. Pickenoy and Thomas de Keyser. His own students included David Bailly, who copied his collection of paintings, Pieter Luyx, Dirk Harmensz. and probably Pieter Codde...all artists of note.
The artist invests the portrait with great dignity. He subtly evokes the textures of her costume, underlining their costliness: the translucent material of the ruff; the intricate lace; the complex golden stitches which create the pattern of flowers and leaves on the stomacher.
This painting is a very good example and would have been popular with wealthy Dutch burghers.
The Dutch Golden Age of painting was a period in Dutch history, roughly spanning the 17th century, in which Dutch trade, science, military, and art were among the most acclaimed in the world
