Catalogue Note

This is a relatively early work by Cornelis Saftleven, to be dated by comparison with dated peasant interiors from the mid- to late 1630s. At this stage in his career Cornelis was influenced by Flemish genre painters such as Adriaen Brouwer and the early work of David Teniers the Younger.
