Maria Trip, daughter of one of Amsterdam’s wealthiest merchants, was twenty when Rembrandt painted her portrait. The artist placed Maria against a stone arch and devoted particular attention to the reflected light, the fashionable dress and jewellery. The costly garments are trimmed with strips of gold lace and Maria is wearing a profusion of pearls. Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn, 1639

Steen’s picture brings the saying to life and warns the viewer: if the parents set a bad example, then the children will follow suit. The merry family, Jan Havicksz. Steen, 1668.
