Guide price for similar double portrait painting: £6,000-£7,000
As with any double portrait painting commission, the key to a successful outcome is a good composition with a natural/relaxed "linkage" between the two figures. The open door in the background is something that helps reccession by providing a lead out to something in the further distance. It is a feature found in several 17th century Dutch Golden Age paintings that I much admire.
