Gerbrand van den Eeckhout trained with Rembrandt in the years 1635-40. He painted many biblical scenes, but also portraits, figure studies and the occasional landscape. The portraits, of which around 20 have survived, make up only a small portion of his oeuvre. The portrait of Maria Dircksdr Bogaert is an excellent example of Van den Eeckhout's later style. As the only surviving female portrait from this period, this beautifully preserved work occupies an important place in Van den Eeckhout's oeuvre.
