The Grocer’s Shop, Frans van Mieris (II), 1715

oil on panel, h 39cm × w 33.5cm. More details

The painter of this scene, Frans II, was the youngest member of the artistic Van Mieris family. He followed firmly in the footsteps of his grandfather Frans I and his father, Willem. Hence, this painting can serve as a pendant to The Poultry Seller painted by his father (on view elsewhere on this wall). The egg basket at the upper right appears to have descended through the generations.

On display in room 1.6
