Pieter Codde, who worked in Amsterdam, painted a number of family groups in the 1640s. It has been suggested (on the basis of comparison with engravings by Pontius after Codde) that the sitters are Hendricus Meursius and Judith Cotermans with their son. However, the resemblances are not very close.
