Summary

Description in Flemish paintings C. 1600-C. 1800 III, Nationalmuseum, Stockholm, 2010, cat.no. 123:
Technical notes: This painting’s support consists of
a single piece of coarse, evenly and uniformly woven fabric
with a selvedge at the bottom. The painting is mounted
on a non-original strainer. The tacking edges have not
been trimmed. The ground is brown and has been evenly
applied to cover the texture of the canvas completely.
The paint layer has been applied opaquely with coarse
and distinct brushstrokes. The painting is in poor condition
and is probably a 19th century copy.
Provenance: Transferred in 1866 from Gripsholm.
Bibliography: Cat. Gripsholm I, Stockholm 1951, p. 50.

ing in the background. The subject is wearing armour
