Fine Art/Possible Danish or Dutch Oil Portrait?


Danish or Dutch?
Danish or Dutch?  
Can you determine the nationality of this fisherman from his garb? The portrait, which appears to be oil on canvass, originally hung in an early 18th Century baroness's home (c1715, Dordrecht, Neth.). The painting's dimensions are 19.5"h by 15.5"w, with a barely discernable artist's signature: "B. J'v SAS....?" at its lower right. Thanks you for any information you might provide.

I think I need a few more pictures before I can tell you more about that one. Please send some to my email - I would like of the front, back, brushwork and signature. And please let me know if there is any labels attached and what they might say.

you can email me at

Best Regards, Soren
