A LADY SITTING IN AN INTERIOR, EMBROIDERING AT A TABLE WITH A BIRD IN A BIRDCAGE, TOGETHER WITH A DOG

Description

Although clearly reminiscent of genre paintings done in the second half of the 17th Century, this work should be dated somewhat later, as the chair can be dated around 1700. The dress of the lady, however, is directly derived from costumes worn by ladies in early genre works by Gerard ter Borch (1617-1681), Gabriel Metsu (1629-1667) and his pupil Michiel van Musscher (1645-1705). Other motifs in this interior also refer to the 17th Century, such as the auricular frame with festoons of flowers on the wall, which can be dated circa 1655.1
