About this artwork

Aert de Gelder studied with Rembrandt in the last decade of the master’s life, and carried his tradition into the 18th century. In de Gelder’s treatment of this subject, as well as in his style of draftsmanship, the younger artist shows here a preference for the rapid, summary approach to biblical storytelling that was favored by Rembrandt himself.
