Circle of Marcus Gheeraerts de Jonge (UK, ca1600). This charming young nobleman oozes elegance and grace. He looks us in the eye with quite some self confidence in his white ruff, spotless green doublet and stylish black hat. Shows off with ornated belt and beautifully pointed lace sleeve ends.
Trained by his father Marcus Gheeraerts, who had to escape from Bruges when the Duke of Alva arrived in 1568 to burn the heretics - Marcus was a protestant - Marcus The Younger (Bruges 1561/62 - London 1636) became an acclaimed painter at the Tudor court, introducing (under his continental influence) vivid colours and paying much attention to the personality of his painted subject as well as to the fashion of the period.
Extremely rare to find a painting on panel from this period in such an IMMACULATE condition (cf UV photos included). One tiny spot retouched in the background between right ear and frame. That's all! In a 17th century hand-tooled and parcel gilded Cassetta frame. Oil on cradled panel (16x12,5cm). Exceptional condition!
