Portrait of a Young Man Wearing a White Collar Portrait of a Young Man Wearing a White Collar
around 1628 around 1628

This intriguing portrait shows a young man sitting to the left but turning his head slightly toward the right. He wears a black jacket with buttons, with the sleeves opening above the elbows, and a plain white linen collar elaborated with a scalloped lace border, tied with a string tipped with tassles. His thick curly brown locks are trimmed to the shoulder, reflecting a fashion of the late 1620s and 1630s. The unusual design of the collar points more specifically to a date of around 1628, comparing closely to that seen in a portrait of that year by Thomas de Keyser.
