oil on canvas, h 128cm × w 105cm More details

The 25-year-old Ernest de Beveren was the last scion of one of Dordrecht’s most distinguished regent families. He is represented in a fanciful historicizing costume. Emulating Rembrandt, De Gelder painted with broad brushstrokes, used his brush handle to scratch into the paint layer, and introduced similar contrasts of light and dark.
