Portrait of the Antwerp painter Maerten de Vos, as 60 years old man. Two allegorical figures on the sides, Minerva and Rhetoric, are holding a laurel wreath above the portrait.

Collaert excud. / G: Sadler scalpt: ‘ In cartouche underneath: ‘AD M. VULPIUM IN EIUS IMAGINE / Hic Pictura tibi, hinc cedit Tritonia laurum / Illa manum VULPI, haec suspicit ingenium’.
