This prosperous and convivial burgher family enjoy fruit and wine on a terrace. For all their informality we can recognise the father and master of the house – centrally placed and wearing a hat – and his enthroned wife. His outmoded costume suggests that an older portrait may have been copied to bring a deceased father into the middle of a living family group.
