A half length portrait of a haughty, young, French nobleman. He is very richly but almost puritanically dressed in a black doublet, scarf and velvet trimmed cloak, and rests his right hand on his sword hilt. Blooteling (1634-c.98), was born in Amsterdam and was probably a pupil of Visscher. In 1672 he came to England, but despite the encouragement of the King, he did not stay long, returning to Holland.
Marquis de Mirabelle.
Abraham Blotelingh (Blooteling) after Sir Anthony Van Dyck Marquis de Mirabelle. (London, c. 1680) Etching 270x200mm Trimmed within platemark
