This tender portrait celebrates Rubens’s friendship with his frequent collaborator Jan Brueghel the Elder, in whose pictures Rubens often contributed the figures. At the heart of this intimate group is Catharina, Jan’s second wife, who draws her two children, Pieter and Elisabeth, close to her, the former endearingly toying with his mother’s bracelet.
