Catalogue Note

Sparre must have had a particular liking for David Teniers, since his collection included eight paintings by the master.  This picture dates from the 1660s, and is to be compared with paintings of similar subjects from this period, such as the Village Doctor in the Staatliche Kunsthalle in Karlsruhe, where the physician and his patient are similarly posed, with medicine jars in the left corner.1

We are grateful to Margret Klinge for confirming that this is an authentic work by David Teniers the Younger.
