After Adriaen van Ostade: 'A Cobbler'

Explore the paintings

The cobbler repairs shoes while his companion smokes. A water pump is against the wall on the right.

This picture has in the past been considered a work by van Ostade himself, but it is now recognised as a slightly enlarged copy after an etching by him. Although other copies are recorded, no original painting of the composition is known.
