This late work by Haarlem’s leading portrait painter stands out due to its lively and expressive rendering. It shows the conservatively dressed brewery owner Croes in a pose appropriate to his social status, painted in Hals’s typically ‘slapdash,’ open, sketch-like style, which executed with a broad brush.
