Painting Title Dutchman in 17th-century Dress with a Highcrowned Hat
Collection York Art Gallery
Artist After Dutch School
Date Earliest possibly about 1870
Date Latest about 1900
Description The sitter dressed in black coat and hat, and a white shirt with large collar is clearly a 17th century figure, although the painting is 19th century. The form of the hat, black clothes and a white collar suggest that the sitter is a Puritan; Puritanism was popular in the Netherlands, where radical Protestantism was appreciated mainly due to conflicts with Catholic Spain. The painting probably dates to the last third of the 19th century, when Dutch Little Masters were very popular and often copied.
