Gerrit Dou was one of the most famous of all Dutch painters until the beginning of the 19th century. Dou became a pupil of Rembrandt in 1628, probably remaining with him until Rembrandt's departure for Amsterdam in 1631/2. His earlier works are in the manner of the early Rembrandt, who also influenced his portraits. Dou was the founder of the so-called Fijnschilders group 'fine, or small-scale, meticulous painters' in Leiden. This group included Gottfried Schalcken and Frans van Mieris and his sons.
