Catalogue Note

Naiveu was the son of a wine merchant from Rotterdam and began his training with Abraham Toorenvliet (circa 1620–92) before being apprenticed to Gerrit Dou between 1667–69. This composition reflects the influence of Dou and the Leiden Fijnschilder tradition, and is very different to the style he developed after his move to Amsterdam towards the end of the 1670s, where many of his later works depicted different subjects such as theatrical performances often with figures from the commedia dell'arte.
