Happy Baby with Mother 1728

Willem van Mieris (3 June 1662, Leiden - 26 January 1747, Leiden)

A beautiful domestic scene, the cherubic faced child is a great touch.  A lot of great detail: bird cage, colander, baskets, onion bottle, stoneware bottle, knife, plate, bread, foot warmers, brazier, shoes, dog, doll, chair, crib, table, plate rack, plates

    So-o-o-o many details! Love the little doll just below the cradle and the attention paid to the clothing and shoes!
