Portret van Sylvie de la Rue

Portrait of Sylvie de la Rue.

Franciscus Van der Donckt

About this artwork

Franciscus van der Donckt portrays his niece as a seriouslooking girl. The varied and realistic rendering of materials and attention to detail have always been characteristic of Flemisch art. The refined painting technique is striking even in the work of a less renowned master like van der Donckt. See for example the way in which he handles the different fabrics and the hair of the dog.
