English: The unknown lady in the painting was most likely a member of the elite of the city of Amsterdam. She is dressed appropriately for a respected citizen, wearing a black silk dress decorated with white lace. This kind of lace was in vogue in the Netherlands in the 1640s and is therefore known in fashion history as Dutch lace, even though it was actually produced in Flanders. The attire, jewellery and an Oriental fashion item – a fan made of ostrich feathers in the lady's right hand – inform the viewer of the high status of the depicted person. The painting originally formed a pair with the portrait of the lady's husband, both having been made in celebration of their marriage.
Eesti: Tänaseks tundmatuks jäänud daam pärineb arvatavasti samuti Amsterdami linna eliidi hulgast. Ta on riietatud lugupeetud kodanikule sobilikult: valge pitsiga kaunistatud musta siidkleiti. Selline pits oli moes Hollandis 1640. aastatel ning kannab moeajaloos seetõttu Hollandi pitsi nime, olgugi et seda valmistati Flandrias. Kostüüm, väärisehted ja orientaalne moevidin – jaanalinnusulgedest lehvik, mida daam oma paremas käes hoiab –, teavitavad vaatajat portreteeritu staatusest. Maalil on algselt olnud ka paarik – daami abikaasa portree – ning need on lastud teha abiellumise tähistamiseks.
