Portrait of Aernout van Beeftingh, his Wife Jacoba Maria Boon and their Children, Nicolaes Muys, 1797

oil on panel, h 107cm × w 84.4cm. More details

In this informal family portrait, a mother nurses her baby, a very advanced image for the time. The father studies a print in his collection, while the eldest son puts a portfolio with drawings or prints away in the collector’s cabinet. Van Beeftingh’s son Jozua plays with a whip and toy horse, while toddler Pieter, in his high chair, eats a biscuit. Should he fall, he will be protected by his padded head covering.
