Daughters of Francisco Lopes Suasso


Painting of two girls, one seated and one standing, holding flowers in garden with sculpture and hedges in background.
Don Francisco (Abraham Israel) Lopes Suasso (ca. 1657–1710), a prominent financier of Portuguese Jewish heritage, had ten children with his second wife, Leonora (Rachel) da Costa (1669–1749). In these paintings by the popular Dutch portrait painter Constantijn Netscher, some of their children are depicted, including their two young, finely dressed daughters Leonora and Sara, posing in a French-style garden with flowers.
