Frame, Johannes Hannart, c. 1690 - c. 1700
This frame is one of a pair; its companion is in the Metropolitan Museum in New York. They may have been intended as frames for a pair of wedding portraits. Johannes Hannart came from Hamburg. In 1682 he was appointed woodcarver of the city of The Hague. He ornamented the frame with detailed, virtuoso carving. The mirror glass was added later.
