The painting "The Constancy of Frederik Hendrik" by Gerard van Honthorst, created in 1650, is a grand and allegorical depiction celebrating the virtues of Frederik Hendrik, Prince of Orange. The central figure, Frederik Hendrik, is depicted in elaborate armor, holding a large shield and a sword. His posture is resolute and commanding, signifying his steadfastness and bravery.

Around him, various allegorical figures and elements are present. To the left and right, mythological and symbolic characters, such as Titans or personifications of vice and virtue, are shown in dynamic poses, highlighting the turmoil and challenges he faced. The presence of a skeletal figure in the background may symbolize death or the omnipresence of mortal danger. The use of light and shadow, as well as the detailed rendering of the armour and the figures, showcases van Honthorst's skill in creating dramatic and heroic imagery. The overall composition emphasizes the strength and constancy of Frederik Hendrik amid chaos and adversity.
