Portrait of Hendrick van der Borcht the Younger, half-length to right, looking slightly to left; wearing heavy cloak and dark doublet with white collar, holding book open at plate of the descent from the cross by Raphael. One of nine portraits etched by Hollar, when in Antwerp, for a collection of portraits published there by Meyssens in 1649 under the title 'Image de divers hommes desprit sublime.' This based on a portrait by the publisher himself.
