About this artwork

The couple portrayed in these panels has been identified from the coat of arms as Jan van Eyewerve and Jacquemyne Buuck. They were married in 1551 or 1552 which makes this painting a wedding portrait. The dog by Jacquemyne's side is a symbol of fidelity. Portraits like these were intended for the sittingroom where they would be viewed from close quarters. Consequently they were painted with particular care.
