Vincent Denne

Painted by Cornelius Janssens van Ceulen in 1640. I can’t find much about Vincent, but he lived in Kent and died two years after this portrait was painted. He looks straight out of the picture and is neatly turned out in braided doublet and linen. His falling band is well painted, you can almost feel the texture of the linen, edged with what looks like linen cutwork and tied with bandstrings and worked tassels. Spot also the unbuttoned lower portion of his doublet and the lace on his shirt that peeks out.
