A pair of signed 18th century portraits of a Dutch merchant and his wife, half length in silk and velvet dress. She clutches a bunch of roses to her breast, he leans on an inscribed wool sack tied with rope. The portrait of the gentleman is signed upper right.

Both portraits have been relined at some stage in the mid twentieth century and are on new stretchers. Their condition is good with minor restoration, they are highly decorative and display very well in later slim gold baguette frames.

Jan Van Meyer c.1681-aft.174
Little is know about the Dutch artist Jan Van Meyer. However one of his most celebrated paintings in the collection of The Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge 'The daughters of Sir Matthew Decker, Bart'. There are immediate similarities in the handling of the drapery in this painting and the portraits that we offer here which reveals the artists skill in dealing with the colourful velvet, silks and embroidery of 18th century costume.
