portrait, single, male, exterior;
The subject of this portrait is the Reverend Dr. Abraham Capadose, a physician and Calvinist writer from The Hague. Capadose had been one of the delegates to attend the historically important Disruption meeting held on 18 May 1843, which resulted in the formulation of the Deed of Demission and the founding of the Free Church of Scotland. Born into a Sephardic Jewish family and baptized at the age of twenty-seven, Capadose was a central figure in the nineteenth-century Jewish Awakening movement in the Netherlands and actively promoted outreach efforts and prayer services for the "salvation" of Jews.
