Footnotes

  • The present portrait is loosely related to the three-quarter-length portrait of Jan van Montfort of 1627/28 in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna. A bust-length copy is in the Historische Sammlung Krupp, Essen. Both these paintings differ from the present work in showing the sitter wearing a large ruff collar. Van Monsfort was a sculptor and medallist who was Counsellor and Mintmaster at the Court of the Archduke of Brussels.
