Portrait of a man playing the violin c. 1700
Jan Frans Douven (1656-1727), Holland

Again, many similiarities with Gerard Dou's two paintings of 1653 and 1665. The reproduction is not good enough to see the position of the right hand thumb (I'm not even sure if the painting shows that detail) - but the violin remains low, and we're back with a short bow.
