Self-Portrait with Family by Otto van Veen

Self Portrait with Family by Otto van Veen

Flemish artist Otto van Vein admired the art of the Italian Renaissance and in his works, especially in religious compositions, tried to follow his precepts. The portraits of the artist’s brush differ in a realistic manner.

This Louvre work presents his numerous family. He himself sits in front of an easel with unfinished work, and around him relatives – both men and women with sparkling white starched collars, standing out on dark clothes.

All ladies, regardless of age, are depicted with white caps on their heads.
