This print belongs to the early works of Jacques de Gheyn. It depicts the Biblical parable about an unhappy kingdom ruled by a „child“ and its counterpart a kingdom ruled by a good, mature king (R 48894). Here, too, Van Mander's elegant Mannerist composition features gracefully stylized, elongated figures.
