Oopjen was the eldest of three daughters of an old, affluent Amsterdam family. She sat to Rembrandt one year after her marriage. She was 23 and pregnant with her first child. The marriage was an alliance between families, old and new money. To celebrate this, monumental portraits were commissioned from the city’s leading portraitist: Rembrandt.
