The painting Portrait of Mary of Strijp – 1652
Original: oil paint on panel 75 x 97 cm, wxh
The painting shows the portrait of Maria van Strijp, the wife of the wealthy fabric trader Eduard Wallis. She was born in Haarlem on December 05, 1627, as the daughter of Adriana Croes. She married Eduard on April 9 in 1647 and died in Haarlem on April 18 1707. The painting is the counterpart of the portrait of Eduard Wallis and was commissioned by the couple.
Maria sits sideways on a red chair, which was often used by Frans Hals and copied here by Johannes, and looks to the left. This is special, because Johannes usually painted his portrayed standing.
Maria van Strijp is dressed in a black dress with large cuffs and collar, with fine lace at the edges, underneath a green underskirt. On her lap she has a fan in her right hand. Her blonde hair is under a pearl trimmed cap and she wears beautiful jewels.
