Dou popularized the the compositional device of a figure engaged at some occupation at a window. Created with characteristic attention to detail and interest in illusion, these small, and refined images incorporate symbolic elements reflecting the complexity of life's moral and ethical dilemmas. They reflect a level of craftsmanship that was the measure against which many of Dou's contemporaries were judged. Dou was Rembrandt's first student and was later founder of the school of "fijnschilders" or "fine painters" in Leiden.
