Prince Maurice and Frederick Henry at the Valkenburg Horse Fair, Adriaen Pietersz. van de Venne, 1618

oil on panel, h 54.2cm × w 133.5cm. More details

Van de Venne uses the arrival of Prince Maurice and his younger brother Frederick Henry – in a carriage drawn by six grey horses – to underscore the contrast between the elegant conduct of Hague courtiers and the boorish manners of the peasants. The artist captures the atmosphere of the fair with vignettes of a singer and a woman selling fruit and vegetables whose purse is being picked.
