oil on panel, h 22cm × w 19.5cm. More details

That this musician is jolly is clear from his large glass of white wine. And that this is not his first drink can be deduced from his dazed expression, red nose and open, dishevelled shirt. These kinds of amusing paintings by Leiden fijnschilders (‘fine painters’), such as Ary de Vois, found a ready public – perfectly executed and highly entertaining.
