Title Portrait of a Girl Aged 16
Collection Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle
Artist Attributed to after Regnier, Nicolas (Flemish painter, ca.1590-1667)
Date 1633 (dated)

This work might be a copy of a portrait by Nicolas Regnier, who probably painted this young woman in Venice, where he settled in 1625. The unknown sitter was sixteen at the time. She wears a fine lace-edged collar over her dark dress.

After being strongly influenced by Caravaggism in his early career, Regnier adopted a brighter and more colourful style during his years in Venice, when portraits like this one became his speciality.
