Cornelis de Vos. Portrait of a lady

"lady portrait". Oil on table. Dated (1617) in the upper right corner.

A report from the Institute of Artistic Studies issued by Don Jose María Quesada Valera is attached.

This work represents a lady from the Antwerp gentry, made at a time when the artist''s style began to evolve. The gesture of the subject appears in the "Portrait of the artist''s family", 1621, Royal Museums of Fine Arts, Brussels.

The portrait captures the psychology of the sitter. Cornelis de Vos directs the model''s gaze to the viewer, who shows the shyness of a recently betrothed maiden with doubts and misgivings typical of a young woman who changes status at such an early age.

A related work to this would be "Portrait of a lady with her son", 1624, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia. 91 x 74cm
