At The Artists Studio – Jan Jozef Horemans II

Jan Jozef Horemans II  1714 – 1790

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.

Peasant Interior – Le Nain brothers 1642

Le Nain brothers  1598/1610 –  1648/1677

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
