Interior of a Tavern, with Cardplayers and a Violin Player


Oil on canvas | 81.9 x 70.6 cm (support, canvas/panel/stretcher external) | RCIN 405825

Jan Steen excels in animation and expression – the riotous drinker (a self-portrait), the sentimental fiddler, the drunken dancer, the befuddled cardplayer and the smug matron. He also excels in the tactile realism with which he depicts the props in this low-life comedy – the tables, cloths, pewter jug and foot warmer.
