bears monogram lower left: AV(O?)... (AV in ligature)

oil on panel

panel: 12¾ by 16⅛ in; 32.5 by 41 cm.

framed: 18 by 21 in.; 45.7 by 53.5 cm.

The panel is flat, stable, and uncradled.  The images reads well, though the painting is dirty and has an old yellowed varnish. Some of the details in and around the figures appear well preserved. There is a fine pattern of cracking only faintly visible here and there in some parts of the work. One small scuff to varnish visible near center of the right edge. Under UV – the varnish is thick and milky and difficult to read through. There is an area of strengthening to the varnish in the lower left corner. One spot is visible near the center of the figures, and a few strokes and spots scattered in the background. There may be an older campaign of restoration beneath. Offered in a decoratively carved wood frame.

Van Ghindertalen collection (according to a wax seal on the reverse). 

This tavern interior may record the composition of a now-lost original by Adriaen van Ostade. A comparable drawing by Adriaen van Ostade is known,1 as is a related print.2  On the reverse of the panel, there is a 17th century wax seal belonging to the Van Ghindertalen family.
