Catalogue Note

Droochsloot was a Dutch painter who joined the Utrecht Guild of Saint Luke in 1616. He is known for his village scenes that include peasants feasting, such as the present lot, which reflect the influence of artists like Pieter Brueghel the Elder and Younger, as well as David Vinckboons and Esaias van de Velde.
