Physician and poet Ephraim Hezekiah Bueno (1599-1665), also known as Bonus, descended from a prominent family of Marranos living in Amsterdam. Like his father, he had studied medicine in Bordeaux. A friend and collaborator of Manasseh ben Israel, Bueno copublished the first Hebrew book in Amsterdam in 1627 on Manasseh’s press.
Prior to this etching portraying Bueno as a fashionably dressed, reflective man, Rembrandt made a preliminary bust-length portrait in oil.
