Portrait of a Lady

Attributed to Gerrit Duyckinck American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 713

Duykinck was a member of one of the most important families of painters in New York State during the seventeenth century. As a teenager, he assisted his father Evert, who was a glazier in New York. By 1679, Gerrit referred to himself as a portraitist and not simply a craftsman. He did not sign or date the portraits he painted for private patrons in New Amsterdam and other Dutch towns in upstate New York.
