RIJKSSTUDIO - Portrait of Catharina Behaghel, Jacob Jordaens (I), 1635

Jordaens portrayed Catharina Behaghel seated before a sumptuous background, which recurs in his portrait of Catharina’s husband, Rogier Le Witer. Like him, she is shown frontally, which was exceptional in 17th-century portraiture. Her clothes, pearls and medallion attest to her wealth.
