RUBENS, Peter Paul
(b. 1577, Siegen, d. 1640, Antwerpen)

Old Woman and Boy with Candles

Oil on panel, 79 x 61 cm
Mauritshuis, The Hague

This is one of Rubens' rare night scenes. Although sketch-like in the handling, it appears to be a finished independent work that he painted for his own pleasure.
