Room A: Paintings after 1600

This is one of only four signed paintings by van der Plas. The sitter, whose pilgrim's staff stands on the left and whose face looks up towards a vision of the resurrected Christ, has not been identified. The scroll below the sitter's hand may well have once carried an inscription which explained the commission.
