The 17th-century Dutch rarely depicted their own history. Which makes Ter Borch’s ‘Peace of Münster’ of 1648 all the more remarkable. The artist was present at the peace negotiations, and also painted the portraits of some individual delegates. One was the Spaniard De Peñaranda, whose masterly likeness ended up in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. If it wasn’t so small it would be on permanent display.
