Paintings of Pieter Aertsen
One of the several one-figure compositions of the artist painted in the 1560s and showing the influence of the Italian painting transferred to the Low Countries by the Romanists.
A remarkable feature of this painting is the the still-life and a biblical scene composed together. The effect of the compostion was strongly disturbed by cutting the lower part of the painting (about 9 cm was cut for unknown reasons).
