Cornelis van Noorde
Portrait of Izaak van der Vinne Drawing at a Table in an Interior
Etching (with etched inscriptions) on paper
6 11/16 x 4 11/16 inches (170 x 119 mm)
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. George L.K. Frelinghuysen in honor of Charles E. Pierce, Jr.

This portrait print is after a drawing by Tako Hajo Jelgersma (1702-1795) also in the Morgan collection (2007.97). The sitter is fellow Haarlem artist Izaak van der Vinne (1665-1740). Van Noorde was one of Jelgersma's students and his etching dates nearly twenty years after the drawn portrait. Van Noorde faithfully reproduced Van der Vinne from Jelgersma's drawing and included a poem about the sitter (who had died in the years between the drawing and etching). There are, however, certain changes: the tools at the sitter's right are slightly different and, more noticeably, the scroll on the back wall in the drawing is replaced with a painting or large print of a landscape in the etching.

Sale, Amsterdam, Christie's, 9 November 1998, lot 233 (with drawing); Mr. and Mrs. George L.K. Frelinghuysen, New York. NNPM
