Travellers at Rest, Adriaen van Ostade, 1671

Travellers at Rest, Adriaen van Ostade, 1671

olieverf op paneel, h 36cm × w 30cm. More details

An elderly peasant and a somewhat younger man who has been hunting – his game bag and gun lie next to him – are seated with a tankard of beer or a pipe in the garden of an inn. After 1670 Adriaen van Ostade painted very few interiors; scenes set in the open air gained the upper hand. These tableaux contain little in the way of a moralizing message; instead, they extol unhurried, simple country life.
