Catalogue Note

Inspired by the example of his teacher Adriaen van Ostade, Cornelis Dusart made many drawings and paintings of peasant subjects.  The sympathy with which he treated his subjects seems, though, to have varied; in some cases, he showed them as crude and ugly, but in others, as here, he infused his images with a breath of ennobling elegance.  Dusart was a gifted watercolorist, and works like this show off his talents in regard at their very best.
