Explore the paintings

This painting shows an artist's studio. On the table is a bust of a woman and underneath an engraving by Lucas Vorsterman after Gerard Seghers's painting 'Christ at the Column before the Flagellation' (Ghent, St Michael's). The scene illustrates the early stage of an artist's training when the pupil has to practise drawing after sculptures and prints.
