The Weiss Gallery is delighted to return to Paris Tableau, 13-16 November 2014, one of twenty-six galleries exhibiting at the fair’s fourth edition. Among the highlights from The Weiss Gallery will be another two works, recently discovered, by Frans Pourbus the Younger, a pair of marriage portraits of Willem van Vyve and his wife Marie de Hulstre.  Painted on oak panels these works date from 1591, when the artist was but 22 years old, and just starting his career as a professional portrait painter.  Another notable work is the ravishing  Portrait of an Elegant Lady (c.1678) by Jakob Ferdinand Voet.
