• Frans Hals 17th century Dutch portrait painter

    Died on this day in 1666, Frans Hals of Haarlem. A truly great master of the brush. Painted people laughing and having fun, but he looks quite somber in his self portrait here.
    Across the spaces of their individual paintings, Isabella Coymans offers Stephanus Geraerdts a token of her love, and he waits to receive it. Just a brilliant marriage portrait by Frans Hals, 1650
