oil on canvas, h 192cm × w 106.5cm More details

Only the very wealthy could afford to keep up with fashion. Those less fortunate had to wear their clothes until they were completely threadbare. The modish attire worn by this young man bespeaks great affluence, as does the colourful Turkish carpet on the draw-leaf table. The sitter may be Peter Courten, scion of a wealthy family of merchants in Zeeland.
