Catalogue Note

The image is somewhat similar to the drawing entitled 'Backer (Baker) by Leonaert Bramer (1596-1674) from his ‘Straatwerken’ (‘Street Works’) series produced in the mid-17th century which may been the source for the present plate. The image was used as a source for Delft produced in the Netherlands, see a dish painted with a similar scene in a 'Petit Feu' palette illustrated by Robert Aronson, The Ivan B. Hart Collection, Monte Carlo, and other recent acquisitions, Amsterdam, 2013, pp. 100-101, no. 58.
