Catalogue Note

Unlike many still life painters, Van Schooten did not confine himself to a specific type of picture, but was equally comfortable with breakfast pieces, fruit pieces, market scenes and large kitchen pieces, such as the present work.  These kitchen pieces ultimately derive from the paintings of Pieter Aertsen and Joachim Beuckelaer, but Van Schooten simplifies the format, creating a greater sense of order and stability.  We see that here in the long horizontal lines of the shelf and table and the rhythmic alternation of plates and bowls arranged on the shelf.  The Kitchen Scene has been dated to the beginning of the 1620s, relatively early in Van Schooten's career and before he fell under the influence of Claesz. and Heda.1
