Bartholoemeus Molenaer specialized in small-scale panels of peasants reveling in taverns, inspired by the popularity of the works of Adriaen van Ostade, to whom this painting was formerly attributed. However, the small figures with sketchily rendered features are more characteristic of Molenaer and other followers of Ostade.
