|Commemoration of King Mausolus by Queen Artemisia, Arnold Houbraken|
|Jacob Houbraken, by his father,|
|Jacob Houbraken Self-portrait, 1770|
|The Wife of King Candaulus, Arnold Houbraken. Dutch nudes|
often seem to have a starkly "naked" quality. Also, in this case, the head is
somewhat out of proportion to the body...not that most Dutchmen would notice.
|Portrait of a Young Man, Arnold |
Houbraken. The Dutch seldom
painted nude males.
|Arnold Houbraken's portrait etching|
of Erasmus. The images in
Houbraken's book were all
composite renderings such as this.
| Houbraken was hardly in his grave before later Dutch artists were |
copying in oil, etchings of his naked ladies, as seen here in
Nicolaes Verkolje's 1690 A Painter and His Model.
