Adriaen backer: Portrait of an officer (1680)

(Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain)

A painting from the Dutch artist Adriaen Backer (1635-1684). Not much is known about the man on the painting. The orange color of his sash links him to the Dutch army and the baton he is holding in his right hand identifies him as a high ranking officer, probably a general or something like that. Painting from 1680.
