Catalogue Note

Many of Tenier's guardroom interiors are datable to the mid-1640s and many, like the present example, are painted on copper.  The subject of the guardroom and all its trappings -- armor, colorful flags and banners, saddles, drums, pistols -- afforded Teniers ample opportunity to showcase his brilliance as a still life painter.  Another example of this genre, in upright format, depicting a very similar arched interior with a window at upper left and soldiers playing cards in the background, is in the collection of The Art Institute of Chicago (inv. nr. 1894.1029); and another example, also on copper, incorporating many similar elements and including a self-portrait of the artist, was sold at London, Sotheby's, 7 July 2010, lot 12.
