As a draughtsman, Samuel van Hoogstraten worked mainly in pen and ink, often working up his drawings with brush and brown wash, and occasionally with red chalk. Around 150 drawings by the artist survive, mostly of Biblical subjects, as well as sheets of studies, nudes and single figures. The majority of his drawings may be dated to the period of his training with Rembrandt, between 1641 and 1648, or to the early years of his independent career in the 1650’s.
