Figures before a Village Inn, Cornelis Saftleven, 1642

Figures before a Village Inn, Cornelis Saftleven, 1642

panel, h 63cm × w 83.5cm. More details

A storm is brewing. The man at the left has clearly already had too much to drink yet is ordering more. The dangerous dagger of the man in blue signals trouble. The couple at the right makes love half-heartedly. And the portly mendicant friar absorbed in his card game … did he not take a vow of poverty? This will not end well.
