Together with Dirck Hals, Hendrick Pot and Willem Buytewech, Pieter Codde played a key role in the development of genre painting in Amsterdam during the first half of the seventeenth century.  What is remarkable about the present genre scene is how he captured it with such natural immediacy.  An artist, dressed in a dark costume with a white collar, sits in a relaxed pose in front of an easel.  He looks directly out at the audience with a degree of familiarity as he lifts a tobacco pipe to his mouth and rests his arm on a chair.  With his right foot planted on the ground in front of him, he stretches his left out and places it on the lower rungs of a nearby stool, topped with various wares such as additional tobacco pipes and a glass filled with liquids.  His discarded artist’s palette has been replaced with a delicate sheet of paper, upon which lie a few leaves of tobacco. 

This composition is rendered with a realism that is typical of Codde, and the utmost care is taken in capturing small details within the scene, from the colors atop the palette, to the folds of the thick clothing, and to the thin strings stretching the canvas on the easel.   The coloring employed is also characteristic of his muted palette, restricted to mostly shades of green and brown, which allowed for him to concentrate on representations of light and texture within the scene.  

This composition, which can be closely compared to his self-portrait in the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam,1 appears to have been both popular and successful for Codde, for he executed a number of versions on this same small scale.  Other examples, all of which are unsigned, are found in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg,2 the Hallywlska Museum in Stockholm,3 and in a private collection in New York.4
