The Last, Unknown Portrait of Joost van den Vondel?
In this article an interesting object of art is described in its literary context: a portrait from the Jagiellonian University Museum in Cracow which in the 19th century belonged to the aristocratic Polish Pusłowski family and was classified as a work of ‘an anonymous Flemish painter under Italian influence’ with the title A Scholar in his study. In the late 90s of the former century a very basic renovation was made. In fact this painting can possibly be a portrait of Joost van den Vondel by Philips Koninck – the last one perhaps. An anthropometric analysis of this portrait with other portraits of Vondel shows a very high probability of this hypothesis.
