Circle of Frans Hals
A YOUNG GIRL SITTING AT A TABLE, HOLDING A BEER MUG

Catalogue Note

This picture belongs to the circle of Frans Hals in Haarlem, and is close in style and spirit to works by Judith Leyster and her husband Jan Miense Molenaer.  Both artists liked to depict children, presumably often their own, in comical circumstances, with mocking or moralizing intent.  Both Dirck and Harmen Hals too painted pictures of this sort.  In style, this work is perhaps closest to Jan Miense Molenaer and Harmen Hals, since it lacks the fluidity of Judith Leyster's brushwork, and only a handful of Dirck Hals' large output approach it in style.
