Among the ten works included in Jacquemart’s portfolio of etchings celebrating the founding collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this print after Heemskerck’s portrait of his father (71.36) was deemed especially successful by numerous critics. The publishers selected it as a sample to send to the "Gazette des Beaux-Arts," while the British critic Philip Gilbert Hamerton admired in particular the modeling of the facial musculature and the gradation in dark tones achieved in the fur cap.
