A Standing Woman in Profile, Facing Left
around 1670

Jan Andrea Lievens had just been born when his father Jan moved the family to Amsterdam, presumably counting on a richer market for art there. The son also became an artist, imitating his father closely, but with greater bravado and a looser handling of the brush. In this anonymous depiction of a woman in historical garb with an imposing profile view, he based his composition on a drawing by his father.
