One of Rembrandt’s lesser-known pupils, van den Eeckhout also explored biblical and historical subjects, portraits, and landscapes and was both a painter and draftsman. This luminous study is one of eighteen attributed to van den Eeckhout in which he confidently used brush and wash without pen and ink or a chalk underdrawing to create a range of tones. The ambiguous expression of the boy, who is possibly stifling a grin, renders this intimate depiction particularly engaging.
