The Well-stocked Kitchen, Joachim Bueckelaer, 1566

oil on panel, h 171cm × w 250cm × w 54.5kg. More details

The central theme of this painting is not the profuse display of vegetables, fruit, meat, poultry and pots and pans on offer by these kitchen maids. Instead it is Christ’s visit to Mary and Martha, which is depicted inconspicuously in the background. The contrast between the foreground and the background conceals the message of the painting: do not give in to earthly temptations.
