Family Group near a Harpsichord, Cornelis Troost, 1739

Family Group near a Harpsichord, Cornelis Troost, 1739

oil on canvas, h 94cm × w 82.5cm. More details

Troost was a master of the informal group portrait. It is as if everyone had momentarily stopped what he or she was doing to look up as the artist entered. The house is decorated in the style of the time: the stuccowork above the door has a scene from Classical antiquity and ancient statues fill the marble niches behind the harpsichord.
