This might be the only group portrait of beggars ever painted, by Jan van Bijlert called Portraits of the Inhabitants at St Jobsgasthuis in Utrecht (1630 - 1635) and can be seen in the Centraal Museum, in Utrecht.
They lived in St Jobs Hospital, which was turned into an Old Mens Home. Many of the inmates were penniless indigents treated for sexually transmitted diseases. The city Council allowed the men to beg for money twice a year, but that ended in 1634.

This is a painting of the interior of the Portugese Synagogue, called ‘Esnoga’ built 1675. In front visitors in conversation, then the Chazzan (singer/precentor) on the Beema (raised platform). All the way in the back were the Parnassiem (board members). Women’s gallery on top to the left and right side. Visits to this miraculously well preserved synagogue are possible each day - except for Saturdays.
