This painting attests to Steen’s interest in the Haarlem tradition of low-life genre, in a composition akin to those of Adriaen van Ostade (1610–84), the artist's teacher. Though an early work, Steen’s characteristic interest in anecdotal details and daily human interaction is already evident in the way that the grandmother’s quotidian activity is made the subject of a scene of domestic virtue. The style and execution of the figures relate to other early works by Steen, such as the Keisnijding, Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum, Rotterdam,1 in which the rendering and characterisation of the surgeon’s face is most similar to that of the grandmother here.2
