Subjects
This field specifies the various subject categories or genres that constitute the oeuvre of the artist in question. The contents of this field are generally based more on the documentation available at the RKD than on the literature.
Christian religious scene, history (as a genre), portrait
Duverger 1999, p. 498-499: contract for a portrait of a widow with her children, d.d 10 November 1679. According to Houbraken he was a handsome sculptor in wood, but his ambition was awakened for the painting of fruits and flowers; probably Houbraken misinterpreted De Bie, who mentions the fruit and flower painting in the same section but concerning Frans Ykens.
