Don’t mess with my feathers

I love the expression on this guy’s face. He’s totally like, “What did that guy just say about my hat?! I love my feathers! That’s so mean.”

van der Helst

detail from “Banquet at the Crossbowmen’s Guild in Celebration of the Treaty of M√ľnster,” Bartholomeus van der Helst, 1648. Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.

You have to appreciate his maternity-doublet-with-obi-sash-with-a-big-bow look. That kind of style takes courage. Plus, nice subtle clocking on the stockings, and good view of backseam.
