An Amsterdam Canal House Garden, Cornelis Troost, c. 1740 - 1745

oil on canvas, h 66cm × w 56cm. More details

The garden of this Amsterdam canal house radiates tranquillity and prosperity. At centre is a gilded statue of Fortuna, symbol of the family’s good fortune. In the bright sunlight, the master of the house picks grapes with his daughter, while in the foreground in the shade a maidservant cleans vegetables. A tame parrot looks on, hoping for a tasty tidbit.
