Muleteers at an Inn, Karel Dujardin, c. 1658 - c. 1660

oil on copper, h 34cm × w 43.5cm More details

With a few carefully chosen motifs, Dujardin is able to transport us to Italy – to the courtyard of an inn, where muleteers with their laden beasts have stopped to rest. It is warm and the locals have sought shade to escape the heat. Even the little donkey stands in the shadow cast by the larger animals. Above the door hang two empty fiaschi, large wine bottles covered with raffia. All of this conjures up memories of the south.
