Michiel Adriaenszoon de Ruyter, Lieutenant-Admiral-General of the United Provinces (1607-1676)
A three-quarter-length portrait to right in a black velvet coat with silver buttons. Over his coat he wears a wide, plain collar, a dark cloth baldric and a gold chain with a medallion of Louis XIV, which that king presented to him. He holds an ivory-topped cane in his left hand and in the right background, through an archway, is his flagship and other ships of the Dutch fleet. His arms are in the top left-hand corner. In this portrait, which is believed to have belonged to de Ruyter, he has been portrayed with the attributes of power and military success.
