Philips Wouwermans: 'Cavalrymen halted at a Sutler's Booth'
A sutler is a camp follower who sells provisions to soldiers. A group of cavalrymen have stopped before a tent on the right which has a flag flying from it; one of them has dismounted and talks to a woman, while a man begs in front of them.

This picture is first recorded in 1740 when the composition was engraved in reverse by Jacques-Phillipe Le Bas.
