Rotterdam artist Nicolaes Muys portrayed his brother Robert, an engraver, with his wife Maria in the year they were married. Maria plies needle and thread with a silver thimble. Robert is showing one of his own prints of a scene from a play performed in the local theatre in 1778. The silver tea urn on the table reflects the latest fashion.
