Paulus Bor - 12 Year old Jesus in the Temple


The 12 year old Jesus in the Temple, by Paulus Bor (Amersfoort, ± 1601 - Amersfoort, 1669). Painted between between 1630-1635. Location: the Central Museum in Utrecht (Netherlands).

His father, also named Paulus Bor, was a wealthy textile merchant. Coming from a wealthy family he probably did not need to paint for an income. This might explain his preference for subjects rarely painted by other artists.

  1. Jesus looks a little disproportionate to me.

  4. You can post an ad in your local paper or free ad flyer, such as the Nickel, but try to get a bit more creative. See if there is a theater in your city that shows old movies. If you're an old movie enthusiast, chances are you've probably already been there.
