Portrait of a Young Lady  1656

by Isaack Luttichuys

This painting remained in the De Wildt family until 1930, which most likely explains why it is still in its original frame. This gilt frame is carved with Auricular decoration. Winding along and through the organic shapes is a festoon of flowers – roses and tulips – that ends in a sunflower on the bottom rail.
