Flemish painter Portrait of a Man with a Samson Medal
Zu sehen in Saal 7
This unknown man is holding a red carnation between his thumb and forefinger. His features have been painted firmly, with no flowing transitions. The red hat with flaps and black ribbons is striking. The medal shining in the light on the front flap shows Samson fighting the lion.
Although the painter’s name is unknown, it was possible to date the portrait, as this kind of hat was popular after 1515.
