Daniel Seghers
Portrait of Stadholder-King William III (1650-1702) surrounded by a Garland of Flowers

1660 Zu sehen in Saal 8

Seghers, a Flemish artist who specialised in painting flowers, often combined his flowers with a stone statue. This bust is of King-stadholder Willem III, the stadholder of Holland who was also the king of England. The branches of orange blossom and the orange lilies refer to his family name: of Orange. The little portrait was only added after Segher's death by an unknown painter.

The painting was probably a gift from Seghers to Constantijn Huygens, the secretary of the stadholder. Until the mid-nineteenth century, it hung in his home, close to the Mauritshuis.
