More information

Hanneman's portrait of Johan de Witt dates from 1652 when he was working in The Hague as Pensionary for Dordrecht, his town of birth. If Adriaen Pauw was absent, De Witt also acted as Council Pensionary. In 1653, he succeeded Pauw in this position. Hanneman shows de Witt turned to the left with a truncated pillar in the background. The pillar was, at that time, not only a symbol of mortality, but also of steadfastness, acuity and, sometimes, chastity.
