Peasants in an Interior, Adriaen van Ostade, 1661

Peasants in an Interior, Adriaen van Ostade, 1661

oil on copper, h 37cm × w 47cm. More details

Three men and a woman discuss daily matters, and a child eats soup or porridge while a dog looks on. Peasant life does not seem at all bad. In Van Ostade’s early works, peasants regularly tumble over one another brawling, but in his later paintings, like this one, they are usually calmer and much more collected.

On display in room 2.13
