Het dansende paar (easel painting (painting by form); Adriaen van Ostade (Haarlem 1610 - Haarlem 1685-04-28); 1625/1640; Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands); SK-A-2568; RM001.collect.4896)
Note: In an old peasant's hut or cellar, a group of peasants are having fun with music, dance, drink and tobacco. The couple on the left are dancing, with legs and feet flying to the sound of the violin. On the right a man is drinking beer out of an enormous striped glass, a 'pass glass'. These were often used for drinking games. The person with the glass of beer in his hand had to drink from one stripe to the next in one go. The forfeit for failing was to drink to the next stripe, and so on until the drinker managed to hit a stripe. Van Ostade, who painted this cheerful scene, was well-known for his depictions of peasant life.
