#7 “Pendant Portraits of Maerten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit” by Rembrandt Van Rinjn ($180M)
The alluring portrait of a bride and a groom on the canvas is a sign of remembrance of the wedding of Maarten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit, held in 1634. The painting illustrates the full-length portraiture work of Rembrandt Van Rijn.
Although the two were painted separately but have been kept together to date. It was hung side by side during various exhibitions held in Amsterdam and Paris. The painting portrays the elite class pair of Amsterdam’s newlyweds.
The Pendant Portraits of Maerten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit is jointly owned by the Rijks museum and the louvre Museum since 2015 after both museums contributed to purchase it. Formerly, it was owned by the Rothschild family.
