We have recently described a beautiful portrait of Amsterdam merchant and art collector Abraham Velters. It is a remarkable copy after a painting by Jacob Adriaensz. Backer (1608-1651), last seen at Christie’s in 2012.
The Rijksmuseum holds a copy of the marvellous portrait, but it’s much more clumsy and less neat than our watercolor.
Find below the original painting and the drawn copy at the Rijksmuseum. More on our drawing at this link: PR12121.
