Pendant to P90. Jean Pellicorne, a wealthy Amsterdam merchant, married Susanna van Collen in 1626, and their children, Anna and Caspar, were born in December 1626 and June 1628 respectively. The portrait shows Caspar bringing his father a bag of money, symbolising his duty as heir to act as future protector and provider for his family. This image of social responsibility and piety is further emphasised by the picture (barely discernible) on the wall behind the sitters, which shows the young Samuel being dedicated to the Lord (Samuel I, I, 27–28).
