"Portrait of a Lady", 1667, by Gabriël Metsu (Dutch, 1629-1667). Dating to the last year of Metsu's tragically short life, this exquisitely preserved panel reveals the elegant and ornate style that he was developing in response to trends in contemporary Dutch portraiture at mid-century. Although unidentified, the sitter was a woman of status and wealth as evidenced by the opulence of her dress and furnishings.
