This early to mid-17th-century oil on panel depicts Maurice of Nassau (1567-1625), Prince of Orange. Its a bust-length portrait, presented in a feigned oval, after a full length by Dutch artist Michiel Jansz. van Mierevelt (1567-1641).
Maurice of Nassau was a highly proficient military strategist and commanded the Dutch forces during a rebellion against Spain. His genius was borne from an acute understanding of military history, tactics, and mathematics. He was also fascinated by emerging technologies. Here, in this portrait from around 1640, hes shown wearing a lace ruff, parcel-gilt armour, and a red sash embroidered with gold - as per the original version. The oval is an interesting addition and is reminiscent of compositions used for engravings of the Prince.
Numerous versions of this portrait were produced throughout the 17th century including one by an unknown artist which is currently held in the Royal Collection. Theres another at National Galleries Scotland.
Held within a gilt frame.
