About this artwork

One of Rembrandt’s last pupils, Aert de Gelder continued to paint with the glowing colors, shimmering, richly textured surfaces, and psychological penetration of his master’s very late work well into the 18th century. This picture has the appearance of a portrait, but the intimate frontal pose and rather fanciful costume suggest the kind of historicizing character study favored by Rembrandt and his pupils.
