    his is an almost life-size portrait of the Schimmelpenninck family, painted in 1802 by the French artist Prud'hon.
    Prud'hon has placed the family in a park. The greenish light filtering through the foliage makes the scene appear somewhat static. A sense of harmony emanates from this poetic portrait.
    The family's twelve year old daughter, Catharina, is holding a garland of flowers in her hand.
    Her eight year old brother, Gerrit, is playing with a dog.
    Rutger Jan Schimmelpenninck is sitting with a book in his hand day-dreaming.
    His wife, Catharina Nahuys, leans towards him.
    Although Schimmelpenninck was a highly regarded statesman, he has not had himself portrayed here as a diplomat, but rather as a husband and father.
