After Jan Steen: 'An Itinerant Musician saluting Two Women in a Kitchen'

Explore the paintings

The old man saluting the women in the kitchen has a flute in his breeches pocket, which suggests that he is an itinerant musician.

This monochrome picture ('grisaille'), painted on paper, is a copy of a painting by Jan Steen in an English private collection. It was probably made by (or for) Samuel de Wilde (1748 - 1832) in preparation for his print after Steen's original. The signature cannot be considered genuine.
