The Tailor’s Workshop, Quiringh Gerritsz. van Brekelenkam, 1661

oil on panel, h 66cm × w 53.5cm. More details

Tourists visiting the Netherlands during the 17th century marvelled at the many paintings hanging in the homes of even the humblest of craftsmen. Quiringh van Brekelenkam here depicts the shop of a tailor, who is at work with two apprentices seated on a kind of raised platform. Hanging above them is a contemporary river landscape in a black frame.
