Gebrand van den Eeckhout worked in Rembrandt’s studio from about 1635 to 1640. There he overlapped with Govert Flink and Ferdinand Bol, whose works are on view nearby. A versatile artist, he produced artwork in every genre, from narratives to portraits to landscapes. For many years this drawing, which may relate to the triumphal entrance of Mordechai from the Old Testament book of Esther (6:11), was attributed to Rembrandt. The varied pen accents and heavy zig-zag shading, however, departs from Rembrandt’s efficient and exacting style and is more characteristic of Van den Eeckhout’s work.
