Frans Hals: 'Portrait of a Man in his Thirties'
Leaning back and with his head turned towards the viewer, the sitter appears relaxed. The vivacity of the brushwork gives the portrait a remarkable sense of immediacy. The sitter has not been identified: his age and the date (1633) when he sat to Hals are inscribed beneath the artist's monogram.

The canvas has been cut on the right edge so that the second digit of his age has been lost.
