Still Life with a Tall Beer Glass, Jan Jansz. van de Velde (III), 1647

olieverf op paneel, h 64cm × w 59cm. More details

A striking object in this painting is the tall, distinctive type of beer glass known in English by the German term ‘Passglas’. It was used in drinking games during the 17th century. Each person took his turn to drink down to the next ring in one swig – no easy feat if you were already tipsy. Those who did not manage to reach the ring had to keep on going until they succeeded.
