Adriaen Maertensz. Block
Albrecht Pietersz. de Wit, 1621
Adriaen Maertensz was successively the captain, commander, and governor of Ambon and the administrator of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). After a long but questionable career, he was suspended from office. He returned to his homeland where he had a large estate: the current Keukenhof.
As Adriaen grew older and wiser, he had a change of heart and decided to have his portrait painted to prove to the world that beauty comes from within.
