Johannes van Vliet worked for Rembrandt in the late 1620s and 1630s. For the most part, he prepared Rembrandt’s painted compositions for production as prints; he also made direct copies of the master’s prints.

Van Vliet created etchings after his own designs as well, although many derive thematically from work by Rembrandt. Scenes of everyday life, peasants, card players, and beggars were his subject matter of choice.
