The paintings of Van der Werff, who was employed by Johann Wilhelm II, the Elector Palatine, are indebted to the tradition of the Leiden fijnschilders. Their fascination lies in their technical precision, reduced colouring, and porcelain-like smoothness, especially in the skin tones, which are reminiscent of miniatures.
