This portrait was long thought to be a Dutch work. More recently the seemingly Flemish, relaxed and generous painting style had been thought to show the stylistic qualities of the Antwerp genre and portrait painter Gonzales Coques. The figures are presented very prestigiously. They have so far not been identified, but their clothes and the grand atmosphere of the surrounding park suggest that they are members of Antwerp high society. Nevertheless the painter is able to replace refined social distance with individual and natural behaviour and gestures, and lively characterization of the faces. Symbols of faith and love suggest that this is a portrait for a wedding or an engagement.
