Christoffel van den Berghe
1588/9 - 1628
Christ with St John the Evangelist and Nicodemus seated at a Table in a candlelit Interior
This rare religious subject by the painter is dated 1617 and so along with a flower still life in the Philadelphia Museum of Art they represent the earliest dated works by the painter.
