A representative of the Leiden school, formed by Rembrandt, some works are attributed to a joint work between the two artists. Gérard Dou's paintings are always small in size, extremely meticulous, depicting scenes topped by an arched frame.

with its key, I did not dare operate the lock given the age of the box.
