Interior with a Woman Feeding a Parrot, Known as ‘The Parrot Cage’, Jan Havicksz. Steen, c. 1660 - c. 1670

oil on canvas on panel, h 50cm × w 40cm. More details

The wealth of motifs and humorous vignettes in Jan Steen’s paintings often overshadow his great artistic flair. Steen’s mastery lies both in his subtle colour combinations and in his rendering of different kinds of textures. The colour scheme of this painting is fairly drab and grey: only the clothing of the woman in the middle is rendered in delicate shades of violet and green.

On display in Eregalerij Jan Havicksz. Steen
