Boerengezelschap binnenshuis (easel painting (painting by form); Adriaen van Ostade (Haarlem 1610 - Haarlem 1685-04-28); 1661; Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands); SK-C-200; RM001.collect.4899)
Note: Gathered in a spacious but soberly furnished room is a company of peasants. In the centre by the hearth a man is talking as he clasps a pitcher of beer. The group in front of him is sitting in relaxed mood; one is filling a pipe while the other is already smoking. A little further off two peasants are talking while in the background is a group round a table. Everywhere Gouda clay pipes are lying around; there are some jugs and other household objects on the floor. In the foreground the eye catches a little girl eating something while a dog looks on. In this spontaneous scene Adriaen van Ostade has painted a good-natured world of countryfolk enjoying their leisure. In some of his other paintings they are treated with less respect.
