Portrait of a Young Woman, ca. 1635–40

16 1/2 x 10 15/16 inches (419 x 277 mm)
Purchased as the gift of the Fellows with the special assistance of a number of Fellows and Trustees in honor of Felice Stampfle; 1977.42

Although he was a prolific draftsman, portrait studies are relatively rare in Jordaens’s graphic oeuvre. This heavily worked sheet suggests that it may have been a presentation drawing—a finished composition an artist would present to a potential patron to gain a commission—rather than a preliminary study for a painting. There is no extant painting of the sitter, nor is her identity known.
