Jesus Among the Doctors

Jesus Among the Doctors

157 x 202, painted July - September 1945


Painted under the supervision of the Dutch Field Security after van Meegeren's arrest. He had been asked to make a copy of the Emmaus to prove that he had painted the original. He went one better by offering to paint an original "Vermeer" before their very eyes. The picture was never "aged", however.
