Bartholomäus Bruyn the Elder: Diptych of Johann von Rolinxwerth and Christine von Sternberg (1529)

(Mauritshuis, The Hague, The Netherlands)

A set of two paintings by the German artist Bartholomäus Bruyn the Elder (1493-1555). Depicted is the German couple Johann von Rolinxwerth (1495-...) and his wife Christine von Sternberg (1501-...). Unfortunately i haven't found any info regarding the couple but Bartholomäus Bruyn lived and worked in Cologne so it is highly likely that this couple also came from Cologne. Johann is 34 on this painting, Christine is 28. Painting from 1529.
