<i>Portrait of a Boy aged 11

1650

OOST the Elder, Jacob van

NG1137.   Bought, 1883.

This portrait is signed with the painter's monogram and dated 1650; the age of the boy is recorded as 11. The boy is turned away from the spectator, looking to the left. The design is concentrated upon the face and its expression, and the colouring is muted, enlivened only by the fur of the muff and the hat.

Boys are great things to paint are they not   Grin

I wonder what sort of dead animal is perched atop the lad's head?

Do you think this is a painting?
