Portrait of Gerard Andriesz Bicker, Bartholomeus van der Helst, c. 1642

Portrait of Gerard Andriesz Bicker, Bartholomeus van der Helst, c. 1642

oil on panel, h 94cm. More details

Like his father, the twenty-year-old Gerard Bicker is portrayed as self-assured, his arm akimbo. The striking differences in the garments worn by father and son confirm that they are from different generations. While his father Andries is dressed in dignified black clothing with an old-fashioned ruff, Gerard wears a colourful and showy outfit with a flat collar and elegant gloves. Gerard was not awarded as many key administrative positions in Amsterdam.
