oil on canvas, h 37.5cm × w 30cm. More details

Seated at a table in a run-down interior, an elderly man and a young woman pray before their meal. The painting contains a lesson that many Dutch Protestants learned at their mother’s knee: whether you are rich or poor, sick or healthy, be grateful for all you have, for it is a gift from God.
