The Drummer

Signed and dated 1647

Oil on copper | 49.5 x 65.3 cm (support, canvas/panel/str external) | RCIN 406577

The copper support allows Teniers to paint with special precision and produce a shiny, reflective finish. This is partly a composition reflecting the life of the camp, and partly a catalogue of military hardware and software – banners, capes and tents; armour and weaponry.
