At The Nassaus of Breda, there are plenty of objects with a story. Take for example:

Portrait of Key

A special donation is the "Bust of a Woman" by Willem Key (1516-1568). It is no coincidence that the museum was chosen as the new home for this detailed portrait of an unknown lady. Willem Key grows up in Breda's Catharinastraat, close to the (Orange) Nassau family. Once grown up, Key is a member of a group of Breda painters who make a career in Antwerp. Key's painting is held in high esteem and it is quite conceivable that art lovers Hendrik III of Nassau and his wife MencĂ­a de Mendoza, had works by Key in their extensive collection.
