Portrait of a Young Boy, Follower of Ferdinand Bol (1616-1680).

Oil on canvas, 88.5 x 72cm.
Ferdinand Bol was a Dutch artist who studied with Rembrandt (1606-1669) and whose work was much influenced by that of the master. Like Rembrandt, he favoured historical subjects, portraits, (often of figures in exotic clothes) and self portraits. Godfrey Kneller (1646-1723), who would become one of the leading portrait painters in England in the late 17th and early 18th Centuries, was one of his pupils.
