About this artwork

This work is now recognized as a clear example of Arent de Gelder’s individual style. A pupil of Rembrandt’s in the last stage of his career, De Gelder’s drawings can be characterized by their straight, loose lines; the placement of darker accents; and a focus on contours of the figures to the exclusion of defining the volume within the forms.
