The Serenade, Judith Leyster, 1629

oil on panel, h 45.5cm × w 35cm More details

The singing lute-player is depicted di sotto in su, from a low vantage point. His extravagant red breeches with yellowish-gold and black stripes are slightly out of focus, creating the illusion that the viewer is looking up at him from close by. Judith Leyster was one of the very few professional female painters of her time.

On display in room 2.6
