Posthumous Portrait of William IV (1711-1751)

William IV, Prince of Orange-Nassau, died at the age of forty. This portrait was painted shortly after by Aved, a French painter who lived in The Hague for a time. Aved has given the prince the air of a ruler, with a proud stance and gleaming breastplate. He gave him an oar by way of commander’s staff. The ships in the background complete the scene: the prince as ruler of the seas.

In 1749 William IV purchased 'The Bull' by Paulus Potter, so laying the foundation for the impressive collection of paintings brought together by his son and successor, William V.
