Posthumous Portrait of Mary I Stuart with a Servant by Adriaen Hanneman Mauritshuis 429

description

Summary

Nederlands: Mary Stuart, dochter van de Engelse koning, was de echtgenote van de Hollandse stadhouder Willem II van Oranje-Nassau. Ze overleed toen ze nog maar 29 jaar oud was. Dit portret werd een paar jaar later gemaakt door Hanneman, indertijd de belangrijkste portretschilder van Den Haag.
Mary is verkleed als ‘Amerikaanse’ of ‘Indiaanse’, klaar voor een gekostumeerd bal. Ze draagt een verenmantel en een tulband met struisveren. De zwarte bediende naast haar maakt het geheel nóg exotischer.

Adriaen Hanneman (c. 1603-1671) was a Dutch painter of the Golden Age, best known for his portraits. He was born in The Hague and was a pupil of the portrait painter Anthony van Ravesteyn. Hanneman worked mainly in The Hague, where he became a successful portrait painter, attracting commissions from the Dutch nobility and upper class. His portraits are notable for their detailed rendering of costume and jewellery, as well as his ability to capture the likeness and personality of his subjects. Hanneman's portraits often feature elegant poses and rich colours, reflecting the opulence of the Dutch Golden Age. In addition to his portraits of individuals, Hanneman also painted group portraits, including civic guards and family portraits. His works are in various museums and collections around the world, including the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the Mauritshuis in The Hague.
