Jacob Huysmans

(Antwerpen 1633–1696)
A family portrait of three aristocratic children with a sheep decorated with a floral wreath and a dog,
oil on canvas, 119 x 160 cm, framed

Provenance:
Collection of Prince Karl Emich zu Leiningen (1804–1856), Hohenburg Castle, Lenggries

We are grateful to Brian Allen for confirming the attribution of the present painting.

Jacob Huysmans arrived in England around 1660 and soon became one of the most popular portraitists at the Stuart court of King Charles II. The artist probably received his most prestigious commissions from maria Beatrix of Modena, , the wife of the future king James II. This rediscovered portrait is a characteristic work by Huysmans, about whom Samuel Pepys said that he outrivaled Sir Peter Lely by far. It is typical of his art that he staged his sitters in pastoral scene. A comparable painting is Huysmans’ portrait of Edward Henry Lee, 1st Earl of Lichfield, and his wife, Charlotte Fitzroy, as children (1674, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne).
