Pieter Codde usually painted sophisticated gatherings in rather spartan interiors. Here he applied that same formula to his full-length portrait of a young husband and wife. They stand close to one another, hand in hand, and are most likely only recently married. They wear their finest outfits with fashionable collars and expensive jewels. Codde captured the opulence of their clothing in meticulous detail, right down to the wedding ring on the woman’s index finger.
