Condition Report

Property from the SØR Rusche Collection is available to view at Sotheby’s, New Bond Street, 13 – 18 September (weekdays 9am – 4.30pm; weekend 12-5pm).


The small uncradled panel is flat and stable, and bevelled around the edge. The varnish is even if a little discoloured. There are no major damages visible to the naked eye, bar a slight degree of wear in areas. The blue pigments seems to have degraded somewhat over time. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals a sensitively executed campaign of small retouchings scattered throughout, just visible beneath the varnish which fluoresces somewhat opaque. In fair overall condition.

Catalogue Note

Together with Dirck Hals, Hendrick Pot and Willem Buytewech, Pieter Codde played a key role in the development of genre painting during the first half of the 17th century. His earliest known genre work is the Dancing Lesson in the Musée du Louvre (1627), and from that point onwards he concentrated on producing interiors populated with elegant, merrymaking figures.
