A Painter Seated at his Easel, Jan de Bisschop, 1648 - 1671

paper, h 149mm × w 99mm. More details

Informally garbed in a dressing gown and a nightcap, this artist works up a detail in his painting. His hand rests on a maulstick, a tool that prevents him from smearing the wet paint. This sketch is drawn primarily with the brush. The portrait seems to be done from life and the sitter may well be one of De Bisschop’s Hague painter friends.
