This painting shows a young child draped in a floral shawl and holding a wicker basket filled with ripe cherries. His attentive gaze, directed straight at the viewer, adds to the sense of immediacy conveyed by the portrait.

Jan de Bray trained as a painter with his father Salomon, a distinguished artist, architect, and urban planner in Haarlem (The Netherlands). More than half of his work consists of individual portraits.
