Catalogue Note

This interior scene can be attributed to Reynier de la Haye, who mostly painted genre paintings depicting elegant women in rich interiors, making music or merrymaking. In this work the influence of his predecessors like Caspar Netscher (1639-1684) and Jan Verkolje (1650-1693) is evident, not only in subject matter, but also in style. An almost identical version of this painting, with only one small difference in the hands of the lady, is in the Museum der Bildenden Künste, Leipzig (inv. no. 595). It was listed in the 1929 catalogue as by Jan Verkolje, but the R.K.D. now attributes it to De la Haye.

We are grateful to Fred G. Meijer of the R.K.D. for tentatively endorsing the attribution to De la Haye on the basis of photographs.
