Portrait d'homme romain

Att. to Jacob Ferdinand VOET

Antwerp 1639 – Paris 1689

« Portrait of a young man »

Oil on canvas

75 x 60 cm

This beautiful portrait of a young man is attributed to Jacob Ferdinand Voet, an Antwerp painter who spent most of his career in Italy. A great portraitist, he perfected a unique type of portrait during his years in Rome: neutral backgrounds bring out the faces of his models, seen from mid-body, and accentuate their psychological dimension.

Voet produced several portraits featuring equally striking lace ruffles. This richly detailed lace allows us to observe a correspondence between the sunflower patterns and those of the frame - a true masterpiece of 17th-century Italian art !
