Pieter Quast: 'A Man and a Woman in a Stableyard'

Explore the paintings

It is the artist's intention to ridicule the soldier. He is a swaggering, over-dressed figure who might have stepped from the pages of one of the many contemporary plays by Coster, Rodenburgh and others that mocked the pretensions of soldiers.

Quast painted a number of satirical subjects with a strongly caricatural element. He also painted some historical and literary scenes and worked as a printmaker and book illustrator.
