Peasants dancing outside a Tavern


RCIN 406363

Teniers’s joyful painting shows patrons of a pub dancing to music in the yard. While those dancing concentrate on the music played by the bagpiper under the tree, a young boy at bottom left glances conspiratorially out of the picture to catch our gaze. This painting was hung with other romanticised scenes of daily life in the Rose Satin Drawing Room at Carlton House.

Purchased in 1811
