Frans Hals: Portrait of Jacob Pietersz Olycan (1596-1638)
Portrait of Jacob Olycan (1596–1638)
Object type painting
Genre portrait

Portrait of Jacob Pietersz. Olycan at three-quarters-length. He stands, turned three quarters right, and looks to the left past the spectator. His right hand holds his hat. His left hand is pressed to his side. He wears a richly-embroided velvet costume with a short cloak and a lace-trimmed ruff with wristbands.

The paintings were restored in 2007. During restoration, technical analysis confirmed what had long been thought, that the poorly rendered coats of arms were later additions not by Frans Hals (the pigment Prussian blue was found, but this pigment was first synthesized in 1706). The decision was taken to over paint the arms. Water soluble paints were used so that the over painting may be easily removed at a later date should this be wanted.
