The subject of this print is the Flemish artist Lucas Vorsterman the Elder (1595–1675). His portrait was painted by Anthony Van Dyck (1599-1641) in about 1631 and this painting is now in the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga in Lisbon. The painting was in turn engraved by the sitter’s son Lucas Vorsterman the younger (1624-1666).
