Houbraken, Jacobus (1698-1780) after Troost, Cornelis (1696-1750)

Portrait print of Cornelis Troost (1697-1750).

A remarkable portrait of Cornelis Troost with the tools of the artists. The “painted” self-portrait stands on an easel, with the maulstick from which hangs a laurel wreath. Scattered on the ground the tools of the artist and engraver: a palette with brushes, a compass, the burin, a cast bust, an album with prints and drawings, other books and a framed painting more to the background. On the right are trees. The portrait and the tools are set in a terrace. On the bottom titled and signed, with address of the publisher: ‘CORNELIS TROOST / KONST SCHILDER; / Gebooren te Amsterdam den 8 October 1697. Overleeden den 8 Maart 1750 / te Amsterdam by P. Fouquet junior.’ ‘C. Troost pinxit / J. Houbraken fecit’.
