Follower of Jan van Eyck: 'A Young Man holding a Ring'

The background is made up of a design formed from the repeated motif of rain falling from clouds, with the inscription in Dutch or Low German dialect 'har.las.uber.gan' (Lord, let

it

pass).

It was presumably the sitter's personal device, but was not unique to him. The ring has been taken to suggest that the sitter is a goldsmith or that he is about to be married.
