Portrait of a Young Man in Grey

The young man depicted in this elegant portrait has not been identified. The date of the picture, 1657, is confirmed by the sitter's fashionable attire. Very little is known about the painter. He was probably living in the Dutch town of 's-Hertogenbosch when this portrait was painted.
