Denmark: Nearly two decades later, the two halves of a painting have been put together in what is believed to be a single painting that was later cut into two parts.
This is a seventeenth-century Flemish painting that is now housed together in the Nyvagaard Museum in Denmark. In 1626, Cornelius de Vos painted this painting, which has been called ‘Double Portrait of Father and Son’. Now the woman has been included in it but her picture is in a separate frame.
According to art historians, this portrait of father and son originally included a woman and was part of a painting that was later cut apart. This is because in the lower right of the painting of the father and son on the right, there is an object visible which is probably the woman’s dress.
Then at the same time some part of the chair is also visible. According to the experts, the artist painted the standing woman along with the whole family in one picture which has been separated later for some reason. And now that’s why he’s reattached the painting.
However, the Portrait of a Lady was located separately, which was placed in the personal gallery of another man, Salomon Lillian, after an auction in 2014.
However, the mystery has now been solved and the two pieces of images have been put together.
