Portrait of Dionys Eliasz van Nijmegen, Dionys van Nijmegen, 1790

oil on canvas, h 80cm × w 66cm. More details

Rotterdam painter Dionys van Nijmegen was 86 when he portrayed his 11-year-old grandson, as he noted on the base of the pilaster. Judging from the fine detailing of the sitter’s clothing, the aged painter’s eyesight was still excellent. The boy holds a racket and a shuttlecock. He grew up to become a physician.
