The portrait presents Jan Sobieski (1629–1696) of the ”Janina” coat of arms, the son of the Kraków castellan and Teofilia née Daniłowicz. It is one of the rare images of Sobieski, the Grand Hetman of the Crown (1688) before his election for the King of Poland in 1674.
Jan Sobieski, the hero of Chocim and Vienna, was born in the castle in Olesko, near Podhorce. He was the descendant of the famous hetman, Stanisław Żółkiewski. He learned his grand knightly virtues in his family home and received a thorough education. Along with knightly virtues, he also exhibited diplomatic skills, which were indispensable in exercising power. In 1665 he married a marchioness, Marie Casimire Louise de La Grange d'Arquien, the widow after Jan Zamoyski, who was the love of his life (as the preserved letters confirm).
The portrait originally belonged to the Podhorce gallery, initiated by the Rzewuski family. A large number of family portraits were the representations of significant figures of that time, including hetmans. The portrait of John Sobieski was a supplement to the portrait of Adam Mikołaj Sieniawski. It was painted with oil on canvas after 1720 and is a copy of the earlier portrait from the 3rd quarter of the 17th century. Despite its poor artistic value, it makes a precious document in the iconography of King Jan III Sobieski.
