I am guessing the main subject is the artist helper doing the drudgery of grinding pigments since he is wearing worker clothing and his wife is lower class clothing, but I am not so sure about the child's clothing and I really don't know what the creepy guy is doing the in the background.
Details: coat, pallet, bottles, barrel, shoes, shirt, women's clothing, child, cloth cap, dog, painting, chair, apron, drinking glass.

Great picture of a German raised hearth. I hope this boy got a little of the meat when he was done with his long, hot and boring job.
Detail: boy, chair, firewood, basket, food, raised hearth, fire, tongs, bucket, brick, spit, reflector, basting tray, brazier, bowl, meat, spoon.

Now that is blue. At times we get questions about fabric color for clothing, I don't think anyone would mistake this man's outfit for drab. It looks like the castanet boy has lost all his buttons and has to hold his clothes together with strings.
Detail: shoes, buckles, dog, hurdy-gurdy, castanets, cape, shoulder bag, stockings, sleeve waistcoat, walking stick, neck-wear
I love funky old hurdy gurdy music especially Jiri Wehle.

OK, I am drawn to rustic 17th century interior scenes. I find the delicate glass goblet almost funny in the very down to earth picture. And while they have food on the "table" and wine in the glass the clothing is in bad shape. What, no bird cage?
Details: cloak, hat, cloth cap, jug, drinking glass, plate, spoon, food, chair, table, distaff, children, barrel
