This is a beautiful work that does not appear on the artist’s website. I passed on a superficially beautiful portrait by Adriaen Hanneman, also oil on wooden panel, and continued searching until I stumbled on this painting. It took me a while to get acclimated to Juan’s style, but I immediately recognized a mature and deeply felt reverence for the Old Masters.
