Interior with Women beside a Linen Cupboard, Pieter de Hooch, 1663

olieverf op doek, h 70cm × w 75.5cm. More details

This scene of domestic virtue dates from De Hooch’s Amsterdam period. In a richly appointed house, two women put freshly pressed linen into a cupboard. They have hitched up their skirts to keep them clean while doing household chores. In the doorway a child plays with a kolfstok, a kind of hockey stick. Brightly lit canal houses can be seen through the doorway behind her.
