This, executed by Jan Stolker in mid-18th century miniature portrait of the celebrated Dutch poet of 17th century, Laurens Bake (1629 Amsterdam - 1702 Amsterdam) is a copy after large-scala painting by Amsterdam portraitist Mathijs Wulfraet (1648-1727; see our image nr. 12).

Laurens Bake (also Baake, Baak, Baeck) was born in a distinguished family of Amsterdam, son of merchant Joost Baeck and Magdalena van Erp, sister-in-law of P. C. Hooft, while his grandfather Laurens Baeck was a close friend of Joost van den Vondel. Laurens studied in Utrecht from 1647, aŽnd later loked to be called lord of Wulverhorst, an estate near Utrecht his father had bought in 1671. He was a member of the theater company "Nil volentibus arduum" and later of "In Magnis Voluisse Sat Est". His most remarkable work is a collection of sacred hymns. A collection of his poems was published by Van den Broek, Amsterdam, in 1737.

Jan Stolker (1724 Amsterdam - 1785 Rotterdam) was trained by J.M. Quinckhardt in Amsterdam till 1747 and made such a progress, that already aged 23 he was considered one of the best Dutch portraitists of the time. After his marriage the artist settled down in Den Haag in 1753, then moved to Rotterdam in 1757. In his estate there was along with other works a collection of 155 small paintings on copper with portraits of North German painters. All these portraits were originally set in a brown colored cabinet with 16 drawers, offered two years after Stolker's death at an auction in his Rotterdamer house. The next time these 155 portraits were seen - already taken out of the cabinet - in 1853 at the auction F. Mueller in Amsterdam. It is known that the portraits were dispersed in New York during the 1940s.Twenty of them were offered by Christie's, Amsterdam on 10 November 1997, Lot 153. Lately the auction houses Tatjan/Paris, Christie's/London, Sotheby's/Amsterdam, Sotheby's/London and Christie's/New York offered many of these small portraits. The inspiration for the series came probably from Arnoud van Halen (1673-1732), who in the first decade of the 18th century painted a series of portraits of Dutch poets that was called "Panpoeticon Batavum" (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam).

Provenance: Christie's London, Sale 5826 on 14. Sept. 2005, Lot 142.
