The Portrait of a widow, attribuited to Giusto Suttermans, is an admirable representation of a strong, authoritarian woman in whom the marks of time are realistically rendered in the gnarled hands and the wrinkled, beleaguered face. The dense painting reflects the original influence of Flemish style even Suttermans stayed for a long period in Florence as official painter of Medici family.
