Pieter Codde: 'A Woman holding a Mirror'

The woman's features are not sufficiently individualised for this to be a portrait, nor is it likely to be an allegory of Pride ('Superbia'), since the woman does not admire her features in the mirror. Instead, it may be a 'vanitas' (a picture symbolising the vanities and transience of human life), or simply a scene from everyday life.

This seems to be Codde's earliest dated work.
