Teniers excelled at depicting interiors, combining meticulously captured still-life elements with human interaction. A woman is engrossed in her everyday task while an array of food is set out on the left. Our eye is led to the make-shift tavern in the background. A head poking through the hatch on the right surveys the scene – just as we do.
