Bartholomeus Eggers was one of the young sculptors trained by Artus Quellinus in his Amsterdam workshop. Eggers’ portrait of Mayor Johannes Munter is still strongly influenced by his teacher’s style. However, the sculptor introduced a playful motif: Munter plays with the tassels of his collar with his left hand, subtly subverting the formal character of the bust.
