"Portrait of a Man, possibly Nicolaes Pietersz Duyst van Voorhout" by Frans Hals (1636-1638) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - From the curators' comments: "This brilliantly painted portrait can be dated on the basis of the stylish costume. Duyst van Voorhout was a Haarlem brewer, one of the most lucrative professions of the period. He had forty-seven pictures at the time of his death, but none of the portraits—as was common in estate inventories—is assigned an artist's name."
