Jacob Adriaensz Backer (1608-1651) was a Dutch painter known for his quickly-completed portraits. With Rembrandt’s assistance, he excelled in his work but always adhered to portraits and nudes.

A portrait of a woman wearing a black gown with a white collar and cuffs, attributed to Jacob Adriaensz Backer, is available in Session II of Hindman’s upcoming European Furniture and Decorative Arts auction.
Among furniture, notable lots include an Anglo-Colonial cabinet from the 19th century and an Edwardian mahogany sideboard. A singing bird automaton box, offered with its key, is on offer as well.
