Jan Steen's So-called Burgomaster of Delft and his Daughter (1655) honours a prosperous citizen of Delft well known in his day for his charitable works. The sitter himself may not actually have commissioned the painting. Its composition and related meaning would appear to have been drawn form one of Coornhert's emblems: 'It is God's will that the rich man shall support His humble porters, the poor who knock on his door'.
