Jan de Bray, active as a portrait painter in Haarlem from 1650 to 1689, retained the present sheet among a group of highly finished drawings that served as models in the de Bray family workshop. It depicts the artist's cousin, the Haarlem physician Pieter Braems, with his wife, Emerentia van der Laen, presenting their three eldest sons to Christ. The drawing served as the basis for a painting (Frans Halsmuseum, Haarlem) that includes an additional portrait of the family's youngest son, born about 1664.
