In addition to interiors, Van Mieris also painted portraits and various historical subjects.The present portrait of an unknown sitter was in the collection of Maria Magdalena van Sluypwijk and was auctioned in Amsterdam on her death in 1803.He is said to have been trained first by Abraham Toorenvliet, then the fijnschilder Gerrit Dou, and subsequently the portrait and history painter Abraham van den Tempel, before returning to Dou for further training; he officially entered the Leiden Guild of St Luke in 1658.Van Mieris's early work was strongly influenced by Dou.When it was in the collection of Maria Magdalena van Sluypwijk the present panel was paired with one of a man in military dress (present location unknown).The painting is a fairly close copy of an original work on panel by Frans van Mieris the Elder formerly in the Gemldegalerie in Dresden (since 1750), but destroyed in World War II.
