Gerard de Lairesse (1641-1711), Dutch painter. Initially influenced by Rembrandt, de Lairesse later developed a style similar to that of Nicolas Poussin. De Lairesse was also a noted art theorist, writing influential texts such as 'Grondlegginge Ter Teekenkonst' (Foundations of Drawing, 1701) and 'Groot Schilderboek' (Great Book of Painting, 1707) This oil-on-canvas painting by Dutch artist Rembrandt dates from the period 1665 to 1667. By this time, the effects of de Lairesse's congenital syphilis were visible in his bulbous features. The condition resulted in his blindness by around 1690.
