Boy with Downcast Eyes, Gerard ter Borch (II), c. 1672 - 1678

paper, h 115mm × w 96mm More details

Of all the children whom Gerard ter Borch taught to draw, only his eldest son Gerard the Younger developed into a professional artist. He specialized in portraits and genre paintings done in a highly refined style. He achieved the same level of finish in this drawing. The light falling on the face and hair of the boy is particularly felicitously rendered.
