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

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.
